Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire.
You can attach pictures to a thread in an appropriate forum such as the classified section. Bearing in mind that any valuations supplied should be checked elsewhere. A check of the online auction houses or even a Google will give you some idea.
Find your way around and get to know the crew.
Have a good voyage.

Well done... I was struggling as to how to answer and had got no further than "Did you just joing SN to sell off things that had been given to you?" - yours shows the usual tact and charm that passes me by.

Newcomer wanting some info.

Hi,
I am new to this site and I am currently researching some family history. I heard that a member of my family was drowned at sea in a collision between two fishing smacks one being the Saucy Maid the other the Mary Ann Matilda and this would have been back around 1880 ish. Is there anyone that can help me find out more about this.

Hello and welcome
From the Liverpool Mercury Monday, October 25, 1880.
The lugger 'SAUCY MAID' (Fisk owner) of Yarmouth has been run into and sunk by the 'MARY ANN MATILDA'. Three of the crew of the 'SAUCY MAID' were drowned; the rest were saved and landed in Yarmouth.

Regards
Hugh

Hello All. I have not got a clue how this all works, but like my navigation skills I will wander around until I find a port. Ex Vindi ,nz shipping company, and port line. Enjoyed my time at sea, but found women, music, and the odd pint more fun. Paid for it later though ! Retire this August and going to work on a 1939 Bermudan sloop. Should be fun! Be lucky old chums!

Hello,

I just found this link by surfing with "MV Thamesfield" because that was one of the first ships I sailed on in the "80's"

I did an apprenticeship with Hunting & Sons after Tommy Shanks interviewed me and sailed on the Argyll, Bessegen, Thamesfied and other ships I can't remember anymore.

Anyone out there know what happened to people like Gordon Hanson, John Craddock, Francie Nelson, Mick Rafferty, Alan Stoker ?

Hope to hear from someone

There is a thread already about Huntings. Just type Huntings into "search forums" and you should find it.

Hi All. Just stumbled upon this site whilst researching for my memoirs. I have been trying to locate information on a couple ships I travelled on during my army career. I noted one posted about the S.S. Sandsend. I was one of those 250 odd souls about to take part in that Suez escapade. Our Regiment moved to Netley ready to load our equipment on board. We never left Cowes because something had gone wrong, and ended up spending several days fishing.

Nancy Raymond

I am currently building a scale model of the Nancy Raymond. I know that this was a pilot cutter working out of Bristol from 1964 onwards, but know very little else.
Perhaps some connected with the vessel could help me with further information.
Please get in touch.

I'd be interested to see images, but wouldn't trust my valuation. Knowing what I like isn't knowing the market.
