Very sad to hear this.
Can only echo what sparkie2182, a great man and character with a great sense of humour.
RIP Syd.

I'm happy to say I sailed with Syd three times. A good shipmate.

RIP Syd.

Captain Syd Garratt

I am sure I sailed with him on the Spey in 84 on the Oz Fiji NZ run

His wife ran a guest house I believe

I came across Syd Garratt in 2003, he was a 1961 BP Tanker Co Navigating Apprentice.
Here is a little of his career that I could find,

Photo 7/78 FN( Fleet News),
Loyalty NA 4/62, Seafarer NA62/63(JP61), Resource NA 63, Guardsman NA 6/63, Sovereign NA 1/11/64,

2nd Mate Cert 64/66,

Osprey CO 4/73, Pride CO 9/80, Willow 4/82 (JEP)

Master Vic Bilh 12/82. Master Spey 9/84. Willow 6/82. Located 2003

His fellow Navigating Apprentice on the Loyalty was PSA Williams, who is now extremely deaf and living in Surrey. Peter sailed as Master out of Vancouver with Teekay. I'll let him know of Syd's passing

While I didn't know Captain Garratt, I'm sorry to hear of Captain Williams loss of hearing. Let him know that I'm having the same problem with my hearing but apparently not as bad as his.
