Yc/pas/rmas Gallery Section.

Brilliant, I am absolutely overjoyed that We now have over a 1,000 pictures up-loaded into this section YC/PAS/RMAS. Can I say many thanks to all those who have made contributions and long may it continue. It does go to show that this remarkable Fleet of little ships has made a big contribution to SN and I thank the MOD'S for their help in this. I had better add that I do realise that a lot of the vessels are Serco Denholm which really are commercialy run but they are nevertheless RN Dockyard vessels some of which were ex RMAS and are still manned by many ex RMAS Seamen. Anyway, once again thank You all so much for your support of YC/PAS/(RMAS. (SD).

I'm hoping to get more uploaded once I can work out how to "shrink" the size and KBs to match SN requirements! Any help on how to achieve this will be gratefully received.

Hi waighty, I'm probably talking a load of "CxxP" but I do mine through Adobe Photoshop element 6 and re-size to a 1000 pixels and also make sure its a JPG pic usually works ok for me, more than that I havn't a clue. Maybe someone else will enlighten You further. I do look forward to seeing Your pics though.

Many thanks for that info Strawbs I'll see what can be done.

Speaking of photos it's good to see more of the older PAS vessels now, most of which I knew nothing about!

I liked the article re Goosander now having modern control systems. I believe she was fitted with a BTU at some point previously as well. The bridge telegraphs in my day consisted of a rev lever and a pitch lever on either side of the telegraph. Someone. who shall remain nameless once treated it like a twin screw vessel and moved the levers - revs to full ahead and pitch to full astern!

As long as you realised she was a left hand screw things went OK, until they put those two TEUs on top as diver accommodation and then windage area and leeway became more of a factor. Good ship though and good crew to go with it.
