CARS ON A LOCH BOAT? NEVER!!!!!!

Perhaps the occassional Rolls Royce or Bently belonging to one of the passengers... and once in a while a few Ford tippers below decks, but they were only loaded or discharged after dark! ;-)

Hush Stevie,

John,

City of Sunderland, City of Barcelon and City of Amsterdam along with the Seki boats and Aya.

Aya was chopped in half in the Scheldt (with an Agrekko onboard, much insurance complication - ask John McGregor, won't be umpiring at this time of year I wouldn't think)

John/Donald,

In many ways that was what I enjoyed about the Troll Boats.
Skidoo suits, ski masks, bridles singing before they parted, snatch blocks coming adrift, burning gear, good crews (particularly on Arctic Troll), two gangs on deck when pulling car decks, Herman the German and his guys, real teamwork ........ happy days and NEVER a dull moment. Everyone worked hard and played hard. Well, that's my recollection.

I sailed Bosun on Denholm car carriers after being made redundant from Ugland car carriers along with many others especially from the Hull area.
I did my last trip in the MN with them before seeing the light to go offshore.
Vessels I served on was Aya,Wild Lily,SekiCedar,city of Barcelona and City of Sunderland I had fond memories at the time of some very good hands as well as some not so good!The same goes for some masters, but all mainly ok..
It came quite a surprise a few years later that the Engineers superintendent,turned up on the Crane Barge I was on ,as a Heavy lift crane consultant,amazing! especially as I was the Crane op !!
How life changes!

Did that run on the Troll River a couple of times as the Sparky. Only time I got to drive the 240/260Z's was on the quay in Long Beach. They only had a litre of gas in them so the joy-rides didn't last long...
