Verey happy memories.
When we were in Oxelesund 1st. mate Taylor slipped a disc singing "Frankie & Johnnie" at a Christmas party. Senior apprentice (John?) up to watch keeping duty for the trip home to South Shields and yours truly doing paper work for Board of Trade survey under the watchful eye of Taylor as he lay in his bunk in his cabin.

Got me there! I'm sure that the wires would have been run from the samson posts centrally. Maybe someone who worked on deck on these ships would know?

'Tis a pity that only last year I was ordered to 'get shot' of my collection of old BISC(Ore) ships plans...which included Edenmore, the two Dalgleish carriers, Pennyworth & Ravensworth, Boltons Ripon & Rievaulx & Purvis Avisvale.......they could have been of use to many!

Edenmore

Did my first trip as Cadet on the Edenmore, but after 40 years think I can be forgiven as to not remembering where the wires used to be run from!

Logan,
What ship are you building? In the meantime, here is a plan of the Rievaulx, complete with lead of wires to the winches. If you would like a hi resolution jpeg, just pm your e-mail address to me!
I have plans of Sagamore somewhere, but we are in upheaval of decorating at the moment. I spent couple of years in Sagamore.

I am just completing an e-book covering two ore carriers, Sagamore and Silverdon. I sailed in both of them! Please can anyone supply me with a scan of a photo of either or both of them Sagamore and Silverdon that I can put in this e-book? I do have a number of pictures taken aboard, but the more the merrier, so to speak. I am really looking for images that the donor actually took themselves, together with permission to publish. Although the book is specifically designed for a Nook, it will work in a computer as an Acrobat reader file.
Bob

The Sagamore had the look of the all aft BP Tankers that seemed to have a "dip" in their Hull.

Sagamore had a very pronounced sheer and was quite shapely in a chubby sort of way. Very strong though, and lasted from 1957 until 1992 when scrapped. Silverdon (Completed in 1973) was lost with nearly all hands in the South China sea in1998. I think there were 3 survivors of a company of 34!

Hello Johnny,
I remember your father & mother very well. I sailed with Dennis for two or three years in Sagamore. Sorry to hear of his early death. I may have met you as well, because when his wife visited in port with two children, I remember making them both small morse code practice sets joined by a long wire.
Best wishes
Bob (Radio Officer Sagamore, 1963 - 1965)

I've just come across this thread and read the bit about damage in a storm....I was junior R/O on the Ripon in late 1964...We were in a real 'hoolie' coming home from Sept Isles (the galley stoves wouldn't stay alight and we were living on corned beef sarnies....I remember chatting to the R/O of another carrier who had sustained serious damage in the same storm.....maybe it was the Sagamore?

Don't you mean Edenmore? I was in Sagamore in 1964, finally leaving in the summer of 1965. No collision, but I do remember picking up either a distress or urgency signal from Edenmore after they had a collision in the English Channel. They were badly damaged, but managed to make it to Falmouth.

Captains Swann & Wiles.
C/O Taylor, Phil Warne, Thorogood, Firth
2/O Usher, Dabbs,
3/0 Hindmarch, Dyson, Bennett, Hodges
Deck cadets Badger, Farge, Kendrick, Blades, Jones, Watkins, Priestley
Eng cadets Hockenhull
C Eng Sunley, Wendt
2/E Pride, Morley
3/E Gee, Morgan
C/Stwd Dutton, Thompson, Foot-Wengler
Elec Binns, Gear
Bosun Bool
Carpenter Macalinden

Am still in touch with Phill Warne (ex C/O).

Several years later, sailed with one of the ABs (Alfie) in the WINDSOR CASTLE. He was tourist deckman & I was 4th R/0
I'm the BLADES on that list. Remember one voyage from Brazil when we cracked a piston ring in one of the lower cylinders. The ship was rolling heavily during the fix which took a good 12 hours to complete.

Keith, If I remember correctly. I also recall that in Oxelosund, you and I visited the ancient laid-up schooner Svarto, ex Gerda, built in 1906, that we found in a backwater! In fact, here you are, standing on the poop steps!
