Re: 3 guest books in 3 years & Billy Budds frequency of change of underwear.
Now I know why you always overwhelmed us with your 'Blue Stratos' cologne.
To this day I've never met a more sweeetly fragranced 2nd mate........on deck during cargo his watch.
I agree it is a fine site - for those who are unaware, Capt Web and I sailed together and are well-acquainted. At least, he knows my warped sense of humour!
I see the message board is in difficulty this morning, noticd whilst trying to respond to Linda's post re the Red Sea ferry?
Still a fine site Ian. Thanks.
Ian - you go through guest books like most people go through underpants!!
To John Sweeney - if you joined the Cape Horn in Vancouver you joined just after I left her after my first trip, which would have been March/April '74?
Very interesting site.
PS Would the person called Ken wanting photo of Baron Ardrossan get in touch through my e-mail address.
