I don't know Norm, last time I saw him he was Chief on the Red Seagull. That was in 1990 in drydock in Dubai.I think she was operated by Acomarit from Switzerland.
I seem to recall his wife was Scottish.
Yes he is the same guy. When I was first going to sea, my colleague Bob Duncan gave me the book. It was from the old Sotherns Marine Engineering college in Glagsow. He was married to Bobs sister. Yes Scottish.
