Welcome to the crew, Phil.
Don't worry the feeling will soon fade as you find your way around the ship.
Have a good trip.

Smile Welcome

Phil,

A warm welcome to the site from the Isle of Anglesey, I guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy the SN experience!
You will certainly spark many happy memories when you have a chance to explore our threads and, who knows, you may even re-establish contact with old shipmates.
Good luck!

Hi Jim - I lost touch with SN and never got around to replying to anyone - I certainly do remember you and all at the Houston Office - and especially George!) Hope you're well - Phil

Welcome Phil,

You probably won't remember me, but I sure remember you, having sailed with you as a Cadet, initially, I think on the Balmaha (I think you were 1st Ops) and then one of the Post boats. You actually did a lot to boost my confidence, and will always be grateful to your style of man management.

I left Panocean when my Norwegian wife and I had our first child on 1980, then joined the Met Police. Now I have an alternative asset/overseas property business.

It would be great to hear from you, but if I don't, I wish you a great retirement.

Thanks for all your help.

Steve Devan

Hello Phil,
Do you remember putting a couple of stitches in an Engineer Cadet's finger on the Endeavour, 1974 I think. The result of trying to start a lifeboat engine when someone chucked the de-compression lever over early.
