thanks to all who told me about the Poolta she was a bit little after ANL Timbarra. They wanted me to stay and were a good crew even painted the radio room for me.

I cannot get onto the nz site as so many suggested - dont like my email addresses which is a bit strange.

I got lugged ashore off the Iron Kimberly by my missus being a young bloke then well uno.

Went fixing tellys and up to now graduated to computer service.

Miss the sea now after all those shore jobs.

I rang up Melbourne some years ago when awa were changing to satnav, got a nasty surprise "do you have any recent sea service" I thought it/s like riding a bike who forgets after twice around the world.

Regards Roy Thwaites
