I was with Uglands - worked on their North sea boats in the early 80's and on the car carriers end of the 80's. I was on all of the car boats at some time or other.

I left about a year before the redundancies, car carriers arn't the most intresting ships to work on!! ibuthead..........I think I sailed with you on the Bahn, Sunderland dry dock, my first full trip with Uglands, after 3 years on Norwegian new builds and a few weeks on the Transporter, joining the Bhan was an eye opener!!! There was a cook on there named Ian, so I'm presuming its you.

Timo, I got the name wrong . It was Ken Wallace. We were at pre -sea
school together in 1962 so the memory was a bit off.

Sailed with 'jocky Wallace' febuary/march 1988 and january/febuary 1989, both times on the Autoline. (6 week trips on the car carriers) He was still working for Uglands (now UECC) in the late 90's, unless he's retired I would presume he's still there.

Yeah,it was a long time ago Ian, (20 years I think) and if I remember you were all ready on when I joined, Sven from Grimsby was one of the AB's, last time I saw him he was mate with UECC. I left early 1990, went onto Sally ferries out of Ramsgate, good move.

I worked for Ugland on their dive support vessel 'Ugland Comex1' sometimes when we laid up off charter we would do relieving jobs on the car carriers. I remember Capt.Derek Shorthouse, a lecky Tony Grout and a shore manager (ex engineer I think) Don Bruce, he also ran a taxi company "Beryl's Taxi's" I was on the 'Autobahn' running from Harwich to Flushing which was a killer. I thought the supply boats where bad enough for lack of sleep but that ship took the biscuit.

Re the chief engineer that most definately would be the legend himself Freddy Lockett,was sorry to hear of his death as I would have been there to pay my respects,one of lifes true characters I understand some of the boys turned up to see him off.
Tony Grout was medically payed off through deafness about 2-3 years ago,I still see him or talk to him he spent a lot of time with Rockwaters before going back on the Coflexit/Technip ships ending there.

Hi Ian,
I heard that both Derek and Tony have called it a day. I was last with Derek on the drilling rig 'Ocean Alliance' I'm trying to think of the chief engineers name on the Autobahn. 'Brian Slaughter' comes to mind, could that be right?

Quite right Ian. it was the Autoroute not the Bahn. I'm also trying to think of the names of the captains. I'm sure they were from Cottingham and one of them was called Peter Holmes

Geoff,
Phil Watts. Yes that was the other captain I was trying to think of. I believe he was ex Ellerman and Wilson. They used the 'Tiger' in Cot and if my memory serves me well played for a local cricket team. There is another ex Ugland captain who's name escapes me but I'm sure he was from an Indian background. He went on to make a pile of cash by investing into the stowage sites where the cars were offloaded awaiting delivery. Before that he was in charge of the container terminal in KG dock in Hull.
