i he used to stay out the north road, is he still sailing, no seen him in years, was he no on one o the tugs that went to help the tanker braer when she went ashore loaded with 84,500tons o crude oil here in shetland
Last i heard he was skipper on one of the Caledonian boats working for BP
Yes he was mate on the Star Spica when we chased the Braer in vain.
