Just to say HELLO to everyone out there. Came across the site by chance a few days ago whilst showing my young Son some of the ships his Dad had sailed on – hoping that one day he might follow a Sea-going tradition, but the question is where, chances of finding a vessel where the Bosun screams at the young lad, “heave that guy rope and watch that eye-pad”, grease under the nails and cut hands, are long gone. Looking back, my early years where some of the most informative, exciting but then again, youth is “stupid” as do not appreciate those things at the time. Thank goodness for age and the art of reflection !!!!

Hope to become an active participant in the site, which, it certainly gives me that “warm, fuzzy feeling”. Good to meet you all.

Welcome aboard BSK to the site, enjoy it and all it has to offer. Most of us left the sea years ago but our minds are still there.

Welcome aboard, BSK!
Don't be sorry if your son will have a less "romantic" career than yours; sea is still great and fascinating, and ships (also the today's ugly "block of flats") in my opinion are and ever will be the only men's creation that really has a soul.

To all those that have greeted me in this thread, in fact everyone .....

Many thanks for your warm words and comments.

Believe it or not (and you Old Hands will believe, that I am certain) have already linked up with an old Ship Mate of 30 over years back - I am amazed (but then again, they say that "Jolly Jack" should never be amazed as Mother Nature has her way of turning things around).

Need to start dredging my server for On-Hire Condition report photos as can see that anything goes and everything is of interest - the sign of true Professionals.

Will be back/BSK
