Hello all

I am an old WWII seaman who never lost his love for the sea. I spent 7 years aboard various types of merchant vessels and cherish my memories of the ships and my shipmates. My main thrust in life was spent as an engineering tech. and inspector, on research and development of large liquid propelled rockets. (Atlas ICBM, Saturn Rocket (2nd stage) which lifted men to the moon landings, and Space Shuttle Main Engines). Hurricane Katrina wiped out my home and most of my photo collection, so I've been surfing the net to collect photos of the types of ships I knew. I lost my wife, my companion for 55years, 3 weeks prior to Katrina and now live alone with my three dogs.

Greetings SSME as already stated my sympathy for your loss. Maybe some members can help you locate photos of your ships, after all they are pretty knowledgeable when it comes to things nautical. Enjoy the site and all that goes with it. Bon voyage.

Welcome aboard this great site, I joined a few weeks ago and have found all the photographs of the ships I sailed on here on this site.
Good luck with your project.
Brian.
