Fantastic site, brings it all flooding back. I 
must have done something wrong, cos I sailed on 
the Belhaven x 3,  Race x 3, Renfrew, Howe, 
Maclay, Inchcape, Kinnaird, Grafton etc etc!! as 
Cadet 1976- 3rd Mate 1985. Tried a few coastal 
jobs, including North Sea (those guys are mad!) 
and a really really boring trip on a huge 
container boat. Started in business, became an 
auctioneer, got bored and , thanks to many happy 
trips down here, emigrated and bought a Motel 
here in the Fantastic Bay of Islands, 60km north 
of Whangarei.
I'd love to hear from any old ship mates, so I 
can bore my family stupid with my endless tales 
of adventure!!!

I had heard about this site and finally got 
around to browsing through it.

I sailed with SSM as GP1 from August '74 to 
January '76 onboard Baron Renfrew, Cape 
Grenville and Cape Leeuwin.  Still at sea and 
sailing as mate with Northlink Ferries.

Have many happy memories of my time with SSM, 
especially regarding the Grenville.
