Any Ben Boat men out there who sailed with Bob, sailed with him on the old Benvenue,think he died early part of last year.A good skipper.
Ok here is one. Capt. Bob used to do his weekly Sunday inspections and here is one of his classics!!! He had a great sense of humour, and we always carried dogs as cargo which the Cadets looked after.billyboy said:Please put pen to paper and post your tale on "Funny Stories thread" we are all waiting to read it arnt we lads?
Yes sailed 2 trips with him on the Bencairn, a real down to earth Captain - who was liked by all members of crew - but if you stepped out of line on him you were in trouble . I really enjoyed sailing with him as 2nd. Mate and Liz and I got a real nice Wedding telegram from him which I still appreciate.ron hansen said:i remember him from the benreoch used to steal all the magazines while on sunday inspection
