Hi Andy,
Good luck with the seagoing memories. I did mine a couple of years ago and it certainly brought back memories. When I went ashore I felt that I should look forward, not backwards and it is only now that I am retired, with the aid of the internet that I can delve into the past. I found it fascinating what happened to my old ships after they were sold. For example the Sugar Importer became the Lucky Importer of Panama. Owners Inter Bulk Inc. At least they only had to change "Sugar" to "Lucky"
I have never managed to get much interest in this from my family. Perhaps we should start a "Writers Club " thread on S.N. It might work quite well as many of the members can really write !
