Welcome to SN. You will find the experience most interesting.

Only discharged at Hound Point once from Burmah Pearl - back in '80, I think.
My next experiences in your neck of the woods was when I started work at Fifeness in '81.
I wish I had a for every person you must have taken off Cramond Island in your RNLI service!
Good luck with Shieldhall - a very worthy project!
