Testing a lifeboat?

Returning from a jolly off the West Coast of Africa. Lagos Palm 1965, Captain Kopec on the tiller, chief steward to his right (anyone with a name?).

Hi Russ,
The Chief Steward is Ron Clayton. I believe Kenny Barr was Chief Officer all 1965?He is not in photo.
Also I recall Captain Kopec having the ship many voyages.

Hi Stan,
Thanks for that. Ron Clayton I remember now, I was Senior 3rd, responsible for the engine on the lifeboat, hence my presence on the jolly. The remainder I think were deck cadets/junior engineers. I did 2 trips with Captain Kopec, excellent captain. I've good memories of the Lagos. Have you had a look at the other photos I've recently posted? Quite a few faces that I don't have names for. Found one photo with Bob Metcalfe and Norman Moat in it, which I didn't realise I had.
Regards
Russ
