I see you are up early. I sent you a PM with some info on the young lady in question. I see by your birthday that you were not born when I docked there so she would be at least 18 years older than you,the place was so small you could be related Email me when you get the chance.

Baby

Aye, I was not yet born but I was the baby of the family born in 1950. I had five siblings the oldest being born in 1930. As you've probably already read my PM and email you know by now that my family did indeed know those girls. She must have been memory maker for you to still recall her as you do.

Yes she was,beautiful 17 year old blond driving a buick convertible down to the ship to pick me up,can never forget those times and I was a sweet Innocent 18 year old. And the Island of Boca Grande was very much Grande. Memories like that are hard to forget,also was the bombing in the war and freezing my ass off in the bomb shelter.

I always did like Buick Convertibles!

Mind you, if you do have any pictures of a beautiful 17 year old blonde girl ..... I suppose we could be forced to look at them! (Jester)

Yes thats the same kind of car,what we called a four hole Buick.
I said I was innocent because you never know who reads the boards, besides I would never kiss and tell. Sadly I just found out from one of our members that the sweet young lady has passed on,but the memories will linger forever for me.

Four hole?

Four hole..............I guess that's what it's called when there are four girls in it? Ha...........Just kidding...........I know it's because of the holes on the fender but I just couldn't resist. I need to tone it down a bit or they're gonna boot me off this site! (Fly)

This thread started off titled Hungry Hogarths and then got lost blethering about old sweethearts.
Just for the record, the nickname Hungry Hogarths probably dates back to the depression and certainly didn`t exist in the late 50s early 60s. I sailed with the Baron Kinnaird (Maiden voyage) 5months. Baron Inverclyde, 2 months and Baron Jedburgh 2 years in engineroom. On all three ships the food was excellent. They were good ships, took all kinds of weather in their stride and a great way to see the world as they General Cargo and they took you everywhere. They were also small enough to go up rivers to good ports that the ships nowadays couldn`t dream about. Three cheers for the Baron boats and all who sailed on them.
