Although not working but active and doing passenger trips, the oldest surviving steam tug in the world is the "Mayflower" in Bristol. Built in Bristol in 1861.

Houlder Brothers crews and ships

I'm not certain but I believe Stevens made it to Master. However, I never heard anything about him. There were one or two total bas****s as Ch.Offs back then. Another one was called Ryan. Served on...

Sorry, I've tried every which way but I cannot get the pic to reduce in size. Don't know why because I usually have little problem with this. Will have to wait until my son feels he can again come...

Port of Murmansj in the early 60's

They had plenty of that. Years ago I spent some weeks loading at the port of Igarka. It is about 100 miles north of the Artic Circle and about 400+ miles down the River Yenisei. Right across the top...

Port of Murmansj in the early 60's

The people who catch the heaving lines and make the vessel fast on arrival. No big story - just what it says "Lines Person". Mostly a male domain but that logic never applied to the old USSR. . In...

Indeed and thank you. The vessel was only 150 tons. Oddly, her bell is quite large, heavy and ornate. I will try to find and post a picture.

I am hunting for any information about an Italian brigantine called "Eduardo Sortsch". She was 150 tons and registered in Trieste, trading around 1840/50.

1950's Harwich - Hook ferries

NTLDR is missing

This post serves to illustrate and remind me just how totally ignorant I am about computers. It seems to me you guys are conversing in a Chinese dialect.

Ghost ship
