Hi Bert,
I don't open the site very much these days,so surprise,I recall your name but at the moment I can't put a face to it(age is my excuse)I am still in touch with Donnie but havn't heard from him in awhile. I am still in touch with Gene and Pete Domasck and have spoken to Pete on the phone awhile ago.Have tried to trace others with the help of Steve Knutson again.I hear from Miles Rice off and on but many others not a word.Dennis Murrel is still around sent him a message but he didn't reply,Little Brian Jordon has gone to the final anchorage he passed away while in India.
my private mail is [email protected] if you feel like dropping me a line or two.
I kept going in a job I loved for many years,but finally had to pack it in through health reasons,(long story) and not all good.
Leaving made a large void in my life as you never get the salt out of your blood. I made many friends throughout my career,but due to circumstances beyond our control you loose touch over the years which is a shame.
Like I say, drop me a line Bert if you have the time.
Kind Regards.
Capt Cliff Roberts.

Cliff,

Good to see you active again - your posts are very welcome. I never got round to writing that book on the northsea days......but I valued your correspondence nonetheless.

You're right though. You never get the salt out of your blood!

Thanks Jonty,things not so good at present!! have to go to Papworth on 23rd of August for quadruple by-pass etc,after having had heart attack earlier in year.You would have thought some of the things we did with vessels in the early days would have given most sane Master's a bloody heart attack then.I shudder to think what the health and safety brigade would have made of it then?? Like I have said before to you its a shame the book never got written,it would have opened the eyes of many,many people who where of the opinion that the North Sea was a pond,remember jonty more chucked it in than stayed,couldn't stand the pace and the long relentless work load running anchors 24/7 six or twelve hour watches etc,etc,7 days a week,to get the job done,Bo Driggers was a master at getting the best out of those that worked with him or for him.You will not see the likes of him again and a few more of that caliber,he was unique in every way.
kind regards mate.
Cliff.

Hi, I remember your father well I think his first name was Eddie? also a vague picture in my head of your partner Jane,ask if she remembers the two Julie's that worked in JMC's Office I think one worked for you father in purchasing.

Good Luck with the surgery Cliff, I had three fitted in '97, best thing that's ever happened. It usually adds at least twelve years to your life, some I know are still going after more than twenty, they were sixty plus when they had the op.

A set of bypasses, is safer than an appendix operation!

Keep us posted on events, Cliff - we're all of the same ilk on here and I am sure many more members would wish you well for the upcoming op.

Yes - how many guys have thrown semi sub anchors over Peterhead Breakwater in the sort of sea you get close inshore and a full gale blowing? Only ever did it the once but found I preferred to do it out at sea!

Chin up mate!

Hi Cliff, yep his name was Eddie and Jayne does remember the Julies. She is still in touch with one who is now married to Barry Symonds (Personel manager JMC), and also remembers BIG Julie very well :-)
Take care and hope to hear from you soon.

I think the Vagabonds last North Sea trip was to the Frigg Field, and I was a passenger out to CDP01. It would have been about August 1976.
I am certain she was bound for the Gulf straight after finishing at the Frigg Field
If I recall correctly, she didnt have passenger accomodation, and I spent most of the trip reading in the mess.

BOC Base,Peterhead

Hi Gavin,
I was a Load-out Superviser with Total Oil Marine at the BOC Base back in the Seventies along with Bill Fowler.
Wasn,t there a Scots Skipper on one of the Pipe haul vessels.
I think it was the Hustler or True Grit but for the life of me,I cant remember his name.
Maybe someone will remember.

Just want to give a shout-out to any JacMac personnel that may remember me. My name is Arnie Kelso and I was in the North Sea operation from November 1974 to November 1978. I spent most of my time in the Ekofisk field on the Mister Robert (my first command) I still can't believe they would turn an almost 24 year old kid loose on a tug in the North Sea. I worked with Graham Provis(best boathand I've ever seen), Charlie Downs, Ivan Harper, Stan Shelby, Dewey Aaron, Levy McKinney, Phil Hunt(best Chief Engineer ever), Amerigo Barbosa, Roy Davis, Joe Harper, and many others. We served the Brown and Root Barge 279 most of the time, but occasionaly helped the Bar 297 when they were having trouble retrieving anchors. I also worked in the Persian Gulf prior to the North Sea (Hello Steve) and in the Bay of Campeche after the North Sea...then on to Singapore/Brunei. My entire career was with Jackson (in one form or another) from 1972 until 1987. Cheers to all

paul ferris

Anyone out there remember (Richard) Paul Ferris - late 70s/early 80s? I've been told he went to work on tugs for Jackson Marine in mid-late 70s then became Master and worked on rig re-supply in Gulf. I am writing a biography about him as he was a most extraordinary man, who sadly died in 1995 and destroyed all his papers before he died so I am really working in the dark here. No idea of exact dates or locations at the moment, but am hping to interview his widow in October. Any memories of him, anyone out there happy to talk to me please reply or PM me. This is a crucial chunk of his life and I am posting all over the place to find someone who knew him/served with him. All replies (warts and all!) will be considered!
Many thanks
F

Many now retired and coming from the Vila Do Conde and Povora de Varsim.
I was working with these guys in 2005 out of Peterhead and always thought it strange that there was this massive connection of Seafaring, fishing and even some of the Gallic traditions between the two places.
Hello there, my name is Paulo Marques, im from Portugal and son of Manuel Agonia Fernandes Marques, worked on Oceanic Moon with Salvador and Manolo...in 1975 in think, anyone remember??

Jackson skippers

Taken on board the DB ATLAS 1 in Singapore Roads. Can't remember who the guys either side of me are, but they were on a Jackson tug we had. Is the man on my right Arnie ? The other was a UK Navigator/Mate I think. Charley

Can any one remember a JMC supply boat Capt Gus De-Blok? he was I think, from Lowestoft.The late Ivan Harper and I were passengers on his boat from (sheltering during bad weather)Helegoland to Gt Yarmouth, I think the date could be around December 1976, the boat could well have been the Forties Moon. It was with out doubt the best passage on a supply boat I have ever experienced. Ivan managed to obtain some get you home quickly juice from Gus's private stash,happy days. Info please! Phil Hunt.
