Just noticed this thread from Daves recent reply, yes I'm still at sea (for my sins), and I see Dave has 'outed' me. LOL
Was away for just a month, on the UK coast, and got back last Tuesday. Was on the 'Border Thistle', as her 2nd Mate. I was offered a permanent job on the coast, but the moneys better Deepsea, so I turned it down, so I'm now back to being a 3rd Mate, the sods......
Off again in a few weeks for a 5 month trip Deep Sea. No idea where or when yet (nothing changes, eh?).
