Cocker Mussel died a couple of years ago. Do you mean Ray Evans? Think he has a taxi company. Maybe information on Ray Richardson's "Sidewinder" site - it was in the process of being rebuilt last time I looked.

I first went to sea in 1958, most captains at that time were war served, most heavy drinkers, and who could blame them. They must have been astounded at the behaviour of us youngsters, enjoying the world that they had won for us. I take my hat off to them, i never sailed with a bad one, only in my old age do i really understand what they had gone through, and the responsibility they had keeping us young idiots on the straight and marrow,
