Paul here again. Thanks for your thread. Am sure I sailed with you but maybe I’m wrong, suppose if I had a crew list I could find out. I was there 1977 to 1984 ish. 1st trip at sea so was a deck boy on board ‘Moreton Bay’ 16.08.1977 to 25.11.77 R. Ryan was Master. Then Discovery Bay 19.12.77 to 13.03.78 Mr Chipperfield was Master. Then Botany Bay 14.06.78 to 12.10.78 H Gibbons was Master. Then Discovery Bay 07.12.78 to 13.03.79 then Remuera Bay 02.05.79 to 09.07.79 Captains name is just scribble! Then Mairangi Bay 04.09.79 to 29.11.79 R Wood was Master. Then Flinders Bay 03.06.80 to 04.09.80 Welsh was Master. Then Resolution Bay 04.11.80 to 06.04.81 welsh was Master, that trip we were in Sydney for 6 weeks with seaman’s strike, bonus! Then Resolution Bay again 30.06.81 to 15.09.81 after that trip I was going in between Stephenson Clarke shipping and OCL. One name that sticks out is good old Charlie McKenzie AB what a top man he was! I can remember taking him to lift on Res Bay bout 9pm, Charlie was **** faced on Whiskey and milk in same glass, most times it used to curdle! Put him in lift and one of the lads was there to put him in his bunk, good old days…..
Ps have you any crew lists between those dates above Steve?
From Paul
Hi Paul, Thanks for your reply.Well it's been 32 years since i first sailed with you on "Moreton Bay"...just checked my old discharge book and it was my first trip in the Company then i sailed with you again on "Remuera Bay" May-July '79....think that might have been a trip to Kiwi only and Panama Canal both ways but i might be wrong. I think i have a picture of you now...weren't you a wee light ginger haired lad or maybe i'm wrong!! The only crew list i have is dated 29.04.85 which Karel Bailey posted on the site a wee while ago which was really great to look at after all these years...wish i had kept some of them myself now. So are you still at sea or become a landlubber....am still at sea myself on the ferries. Anyway Paul it's good to hear from you.
Steve.

was on the Moreton Bay about 74 I think, 1st and last box boat I went on, a week in the engine room, a week on deck and a week on the bridge. BORING ...3 month trip, did get up to a few shoreside antics though, the crew were good...

Yeah they called me THE BEAST in them days indeed...just a wee tame one nowadays,hope he doesn't take too long to sign up to SN as i'm back to work on Thur morning for a fortnight. I had a look in the gallery in the members faces section...there is some photos from a while ago but i would say your best bet is to join Facebook and click on to groups section (bayboats) and you will see loads of photo's of the lads from days gone by,it was set up by Lofty Shears....great site! Hope to hear from Ray soon.

Regards

Steve
