Oh for just more trip as it used to be - what would we all give up to do it all just one more time.

You are so right about one more trip BW. I was working nights on a bluey I think it was the Ixion that was finishing loading for Aussie that night,I had sailed on her before I left the sea.
All night driving that crane I was talking my self into stowing away on her.but come morning when the shore gang started closing the hatches I couldn't do it
