Cool Retired Bankline Hobart Australia

Hello,

My name is David Baker reitred Captain from Bankline. I joined Bankline as an apprentice in 1961, resigned from Bankline 1982, when I moved to Australia to take up a position as assistant Harbour Master in Melbourne.

Would love to hear from any fellow Bankline mariners of my era.

Welcome Onboard, David.
You'll almost certainly be hearing from old shipmates and be making new friends, too

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, David.
Quite a few of us ex-Bankliners (even interlopers like me) among this motley crew. Search the gallery for pictures of people and ships you may remember.

Nice handle David, mine was the first thing that came into my head that was acceptable. I sailed with Marconi Sahib in '68 on the Sprucebank and of course you on the Meadowbank '74/'75.

Just noticed your entry from a couple of years ago! Hope you are still looking at SN from time to time. Of course, I remember you as the cheeky (but not too cheeky) young man you once were. You were always a breath of fresh air during Gulf loading as nothing seemed to get you down!
Are you retired to Tasmania? Must be a lovely place. I only ever visited Bell Bay with china clay from Fowey as bottom cargo.
Kind regards,
Alistair Macnab
Houston.

Welcome aboard this great site. In 1953(Eskbank) and 1954(Clydebank) I sailed with a 2nd Mate from Melbourne name of Bill Spedding.I bumped into him , by sheer accident , while visiting the Agent when my Texaco Tanker was discharging at Victoria.He was ashore in the stevadore buisiness. Perhaps you might have sighted him in Melbourne.

G'day Davie,

Long time no hear - thought you were up in Port Headland or somewhere like that; but no worries - we now resident in Rosebud West, near Melbourne and would like to hear from you sometime. - ([email protected]).

Have been retired for ten years and it is a great job - best one I ever had.

Have not seen you at a BankLine reunion - are you coming this year.

No. 22 still stands and we look at it each we pass that way - Dave & Jenny now in S.t. Agnes and his girls scattered around the UK.

Drop us a word sometime

Regards............................Dave/Nancy Vincent

Sailed with Davie when he was 1st trip App on the Weirbank (1961), maiden voyage and again on the next trip. PM'd him a couple of times when he joined SN but I never heard anything. Seems to have posted twice and disappeared, I hope everything is OK with him in his retirement.

Good to hear that you are well - I joined the meadowbank in 1975 as a first trip cadet in wallsend - and enjoyed 5 months with you - including a very special day in Australia and a very enjoyable evening in San francisco where you bought us dinner at Fishermans wharf .

very happy days

Bill

Hi There,

I was with Bank Line during your time, sailed on Inver, Teviot and Marabank. Didn't reach the dizzy heights of master, only 3rd mate. I will be in Hobart next week with my wife for 5 days, from 11-15 March. Look forward to it very much.
Trust you are enjoying your Tasmanian life, it looks like a lovely place, which is why we are coming over for a holiday.

Slainte

Don
