I see you were asking who Howardang is? It was me, Howard Anguish

I was skipper on Fastnet from the launch at Appledore and after a period on Shell charter working the Northern North we went to Pauillac, together with Cromarty. I worked on her based at Pauillac for about a year until leaving to take up a job in the Offshore Marine Chartering/Marketing office in London, a job I did for three years or so and then moved on to a new position as Ops/Marketing Manager with United Towing in Hull. Happy days but it all seems a long time ago!

Cheers

Howard

Hello Howard, sorry it took a year to respond - truth is I rarely log in to this site. Yes they were happy days - I learned so much from you on that rig move (it was my first). I also took the Orkney to Labrador (accompanied by the Atlantic Shore / Mike Barber) - it was a good gig. I left OM after that and joined Zapata, and 3 years later I left after a spell as Base Manager and got into management in roro and logistics for the rest of my career. Now living in Canada. All the best, Jack

My first trip on supply vessels was on Zapata Marine's 'Titan Service' working out of Ijmuiden for NAM in 1978
Does anybody have a photo of the old girl?

Big Davey Grief

I remember Big Davey (Barrington) Grief well. One of the best ABs in the North Sea and once badly broken by an anchor against the Dutch bits.
Hope he's doing well, and my other ex-shipmates too.
Steve Whittingham.

Titan Service deck photos

A couple of not very glamorous photos of Titan Service deck taken about 1983 in West Africa. If I remember correctly it was later fitted with a small winch and worked in a Spanish port for a number of years.
