Bar Protector. I joined this ship in San Carlos in the Falklands, my employment contract was with Northern Marine Management, Yet in my discharge book the Company Stamp is Brown and Root,
On My next vessel Stena Seaspread, though my wage slips were under Northern Marine Management, the Company stamp in my Book is Swedish Caledonian. it was not until 1985 that the Northern marine management appeared in my book.
In 1982 while on the Stena Inspector, I was employed by DenMac Offshore, then in 1983, I was employed by Swedish Caledonia.
Prior to those Companies, my Service Contract was with Denholm ship Management, Same building, same faces, same salary. just a name Game.

Hi Spence
Did we meet up in Kaoshiung in 1988, when you were on one of the Stena ships, and I was on the Merchant Pioneer ?

If a cadet was on a managed vessel then the owner paid the cadets wages. Not sure if it was true but might have been. I knew a cadet was on MOUNTPARK in 1971 but I believe the ship was on Time Charter to Naess (and with their funnel colours). For sure there were cadets on SCOTSPARL and GLENPARK in 1973/74. By the time WELLPARK came around it was the complete opposite!

Re accommodation. There was no cadet accommodation on board. I lived in the Pilot Cabin just abaft the wheelhouse. Good cabin too. Location had + and -. Too close for the Mate... on 4 -8. Shower two decks down but the bog right there. I had my own private bar. The Rigger's Mess. The bottle of the Johnny Walker's was kept in the box with the Smoke Helmet. When the Mate was on watch, Chippy and I could sit and have a dram or two. At least lunch in the crew mess on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Kept quiet about that one. I guess the cadet was on diet again. As if ever!

Stephen
Sailed as Engr on the Loch Long 1976 - we had three deckie cadets onboard - cadets and booze did not mix...especially when two put everyone on the shake at 02.00 one morning...including matey and the Old man....not a very good career move...do not know or care what punishment they got - but their tabs were stopped and we stopped them coming down the Engine Room for a quick Beer...unless we got one or two as well from the chiller room
