Hi Kevin,
Can't help with the crew lists, but I was an AB on 4 or 5 of the bay boats in the mid 70's. Can't remember many of the names, but John Garner and Martin Pratt were AB's, Frank ( Mother ) can't remember his second name, was the laundryman and Reggie Badger was the cook. If I remember any more I will let you know.

Frank (Mother)

Frank Martin was leading Steward in the laundry, he was always affectionately called Mother. He enjoyed his whiskey in the bar of an evening and a Guinness at lunchtime. God bless him.
