Thanks David,

Did'nt quite expect an answer so soon,thought it would take days not minutes, but nice to be filled in on what happened to her. She was such a clean ship whilst I was on her with a brilliant crew approx sixty in all and many happy times.

I know, I sailed on the Illyric in 1971/2 and was vvery familiar with other ships in the class. They were good ships, good at sea, and dispite the "slow starvation and agony"(SSA) were good feeders. Gone are the days of Chief Steward,Second steward, Captain's Tiger, Galley boy and Pantry boy. Look at www.coastalcrafts.co.uk for more links and pics.

How many David Smiths were there in SS and A in the early 70's I wonder?
One I recall on the Medic in 1974.
We had a 1st Electrician "Sparrow" and whilst on the NZ coast introduced "The Dog House" to many unsuspecting party goers along with the infamous "Falconer's Gauntlet" presented to the officer who.....
Interesting to hear of the fate of the I boats as I also ave many memories of Iberic and Ionic
Thanks for the memories Dave

Icenic Engine

Greetings
Salied on the Icenic early 70's with many happy memories of great times and guys.
In 2007 I took a little time to put my CAD skills to the test and drew a 2D drawing of the engine (3D to follow when I retire and have more time!), I posted the drawing onto the gallery and it can be found here.

Best wishes to all
Jim H

Curtains .....

.... a little remembered fact .... as fitted out the curtains in the Officers' Smoke Room on Icenic were specially commissioned and printed with pub signs/names all over them. Just thought I would add that piece of useless info! - Bob
