True Ian, one particular nasty crossing on the Sharon resulted in a crack right through one of the hatch coamings from top down to the deck. Glad I didn't see it until we were alongside in Montreal.

There always seemed to be a better atmosphere on the R boats than the Nosiras, probably due to the crew bars on the R boats in a better location. On the Nosiras the bar was like a working alleyway. Plus as a cook the old Chief Stewards cabins were a luxury far removed from the shoe boxes on the Nosiras.
