    Default Welcome to your new berth,Cracker Hash,

    I'd like to begin the opening of this new "home",by offering a big thank you to Kev Keegan;he has given us the opportunity to stay together as a crew. Your stories will be read by the many people who are on Yo as well as by ourselves. So just think of the ladies who might be looking in and spare them their blushes ,but otherwise boys,let's get this craft shipshape and get the sails filled with wind and the boilers full of hot air

    Been in my scratcher all night and had the luxury of a lie-in this morning, so only just seen Brian's email about our new berth. Many thanks to Brian for arranging it, and to Kev for facilitating it.
    Cheers,
    Kevin

    I've posted this elsewhere, but might as well add it here.

    There's a reunion of ex-Harrison Line personnel at the Crown on Lime St - from 2.30 on Friday 28th November. It mostly appears to be engineers and electricians, but I'm sure all would be welcome.

    You'll probably recognise mine and Brian's names, but the rest starting to appear are fellow refugees from a recently defunct sailor's forum - now here on Yo to recount tales of yore!

    Acapulco Mon Braves! Tis I, Novena's Alter Ego. Had to change my name because it was already taken, more than likely by me when I visited this site a while ago.
    Anyhoo, great to be with the usual crowd again.

    I have had a great day today,I went out to do a survey on a silversmiths workshop in the jewellery quarter in Birmingham. The man was a real artisan,and he was also a fount of maritime history! When I had concluded my survey ,he made a cup of coffee for us both and confessed that the insurance broker who had advised him to call me ,had also told him that I was a ringer for Captain Birdseye and an ex-mariner to boot.Whilst we were sitting having our coffee he reached down from the shelf above the desk,a large ledger type book .When he opened it up I saw that it was filled with the end of voyage reports of a number of vessels that had sailed out of Goole in the 19th century. They were photocopies of the originals and contained the reports on all of the crew members and incidents that had occurred during the voyage. The vessels concerned were mainly sloops and schooners plying the home trade but there were a few steamships. The reason he had all the papers was because they mentioned his ancestors,great grandfathers ,great uncles,grandfathers and grand uncles. One golden nugget retrieved from my perusal was the unusual story of a father and son who sailed together ,the father as master of various sloops and schooners and the son as deckboy and seaman as the years passed by.When steamships started to be used by the some of the Goole companys' the youth left his fathers command and worked his way through the ranks on the steamships ,becoming a master in 1876, at the age of 24,whence his father left the sailing ships and became a lamptrimmer under his sons command. My friend the silversmith is in the process of compiling a family history of the ancient mariners ,which I am sure will be of great interest to those who love stories of ships and the men who sailed in them. He also gave to me the journal of a Mormon passenger who voyaged from Liverpool to America in 1853, it is a wonderful piece and I will scan it and post it here as soon as I am able.
