That sounds like some career Wilkie! Welcome to Ships Nostalgia where, I am sure, you will find many friends. I imagine that you will have some stories to tell!

Welcome, you're terribly well qualified, be aware that there's an awful lot of chancers on this site. It won't take you long to sort the wheat from the chaff.

Welcome Wilkie. I warn you to not listen to that Hibernian rogue E-S.

And you an old steam man E-S giving the glad eye to a high and medium speed scrap merchant. Just remember chaff gives the bowel something to grip on.

Hi Ian. I thought you were already a member of this site ? Our paths crossed on the Iberic while laid up in the Blackwater River 1969. It was a great time both anchors down and shackled under the bow. Two weeks very little work to do and a run ashore at night to West Mersea unless you were duty engineer.
Gerry Murphy C/E "some character" and John Donnelly 2/E. We then went to dry dock in Rotterdam and then back to London. The Fourths job was up for grabs and you got it. A month later I got the Megantic a very happy ship.
Bill
