Welcome aboard to you and your friend.
We have some lads in the crew who have sailed on Ocean Monarch so they may be able to help.
Meanwhile explore the ship and enjoy the voyage.

From Michigan, a warm welcome to both of you, Batwing and Jeds.
Good to have you onboard.
Chances are you'll be hearing from old shipmates of Jeds before long.

Smile Welcome

batwing3,

It is very kind of you to enrol with SN for the benefit of your friend Jeds.
A warm welcome to the site from the Isle of Anglesey, I guarantee that you will both thoroughly enjoy the SN experience!
Jed will certainly spark many happy memories when you have a chance to explain our threads and, who knows, he may even re-establish contact with old shipmates.
Good luck!

Hi BATWING3 and Jed, Welcome aboard. Not long joined the site myself. I sailed with John on the Bay boats probably '78-'79 on the "RES". We certainly had some great booze ups down under!! It's 10 years since i packed up deepsea but have lots of great memories and sometimes bring out the old photos. Have been on local ferries around Orkney since leaving deepsea...certainly not the same crack. Anyway pass on my regards to John.
