Ian - I sailed with your father my first trip to sea, I joined the Port Caroline in Lyttleton, September 1970. On that occasion, there was a crew change in New York, that was the last I heard of Sandy.

Hope he behaved himself, hope he managed to impart some good engineering thoughts to you, as I said ,still miss him, all the best to you, I see you are now retired, like you , I was at sea for over 40 odd years , do I miss it , no , only my mates and the good times we all had, no fun now I am sure.

Kind Regards Ian
