Stillitano - now that's a name I remember. Not from Globtik though but was he an ex BP Nav Cadet? I certainly sailed with a Nav Cadet P Stillitano on British Seafarer in 1971.

Hi Steve,

Paul Stillitano here.

I remember a G.P. called Steve who lived in Wigan. We used to scare the crap out of each other on 12 - 4. Joyce, my wife, who was sailing with us at the time got us started by sneaking up behind us with the compass binnacle cover over her head - while we were talking about ghosts.

From then on it was open season in seeing who could scare the other the most!

Finally, we had to call a truce - I was really worried that one or the other of us would end up having a heart attack.

If this was you, I'm sure you'll remember it.

I live in Westhoughton now, but at the time lived in Upholland.

Hi Paul,

Yes, we sailed together on the Seafarer. She was a happy ship.

I was a Cadet at the time, together with Bob Etherington and there was a Kuwaiti and an Iranian Cadet on there too. I seem to recall the Kuwaiti was called Abdul and the Iranian was Hassan.

The 2nd Mate was Mats Irlandsson, and the mate was M. (Malcom?) R. Duncan.

If I remember rightly, you were toying with an idea of improving lifeboats and one of your ideas was a kind of saucer-shaped craft that would zip down a ramp and skip across the waves - I have often wondered if it was your ideas that spawned the free-fall boats that are still used today.

Funny how I can remember all that, but not where I was last week!

Paul

Good to hear from you after 42 years! Rather than speak here I shall private message you shortly with reminiscences. As for improving lifeboats, your memory must be better than mine!!

Hi Steve,

Not been on for a while myself.

Yes, we did meet in Pontins Camber sands or Butlins in Ayr - I think it was Pontins. Great place for the kids (although I must admit, I enjoyed it too!).

I still travel a lot, so for me a good holiday is one spent at home. Mind you, I would like to go on a cruise - maybe when I retire (5 years more).

I do remember the alphabet thing - kept us awake during those long watches in the Doldrums. That was the only drawback on the big ships - weeks of boredom, followed by a few days of feverish activities.

Do you remember when I got you with the walkie talkie hidden by the fridge? You came in from calling the 4 - 8, expecting me to be waiting with something to scare you. You visibly relaxed when you spotted me on the bridge wing - at which point I started groaning into the radio!!!

Good days, looking back.

ATB,

Paul.

I can picture a few more but just cannot recall their names, like the Welsh pumpman (Taffy ?) who stayed on the Tokyo I think for well over a year so as to reclaim income tax. Another pumpman, big Dave ?. Another bosun, from London area, well spoken guy.


The last couple of years I didn't keep the records going and I regret that now because there are a lot more names I haven't included.. but, maybe someone who reads this may be able to add to the list.

So.. how many of the above can you remember ??

Cheers for now

Vic

I had the fortune to sail on the Venus for a few months, prior to the Le Havre incident -- At that time the Master was Norwegian , as was the Second Officer -- I would suspect that is how the leterheaded sheets arrived in Norway - The skipper certainly was from the Oslo area.

Thanks

Hi, Dave Phipps here, for Bill Rhatigan, info on Walter Bennett from Glasgow. I was an Apprentice with Walter in Glasgow, we joined the MN together, I went to Chevron tankers and he went to Globtic. When he was made redundant from Globtic he came ashore and worked as an engine builder in the bus central repair depot in Glasgow. He got a better paid job in a railway repair depot in Glasgow but was very badly hurt when a heavy boagy fell off a gantry and landed on top of him. He was only saved by a passing forklift truck which swerved in and lifted the load off him after a few seconds. He received a big compen payment but was never able to work again. He and his wife bought a b&m in Ayr Scotland and I believe are still there. A really nice guy, very sad.
Dave Phipps., Ex Chevron, Ocl,containerships.

Question Globtik Tokyo

Hello,

I am hoping that some of you may be able to assist me with my enquiry re an Australian crew member by the name of David P Thomas. I have been told that he was on the Globtik Tokyo and that at sometime he had to take the ship out of harbour to begin it's journey as there was a problem with the Captain.

Not sure if the Captain was sick or just AWOL.

David was also, again, so I have been told, on the Troll at sometime.

Hoping that you might be able to point me in the right direction as my source has been a little bit vague.

Love Ships Nostalgia and reading the remarks/stories of those who have been involved with the sea.

I was on that ship when it happened, it was a US submarine that casevaced him. Believe he was painting bulkheads in the engine room when he slipped and hit his head and then went a bit loopy and had to be subdued by some of the crew until help could arrive.
