I came across the website whilst googling a long-ago man overboard saga on the Transvaal Castle. A colleague could not believe that the MOB was in the water for 11 hours, sans lifejacket.
Many years in MN, fortunate enough (or old enough) to have served a year on the Transvaal Castle in her new SA Vaal colours.
Many years as a port pilot, SPM mooring master and at present a Harbour Master.
It's going to take a while to browse the forums and galleries - looking forward to it!

On behalf of the SN Moderators, a warm welcome aboard from the Isle of Anglesey - we guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy the SN experience!
You will certainly spark many happy memories when you have a chance to explore our threads and, who knows, you may even re-establish contact with old shipmates.
Good luck! (Thumb)
