    We just need a few more and then we have the old crew back together,once we are all aboard we can enjoy the kinship we had before and more ,because we can share out tales of adventure with all the wonderful folk on Yo and enjoy all the threads on here too. As Claude Raines said to Bogart at the end of Casablanca "..this could be the start of a beautiful friendship"

    I'll give Shytalk a call and let him know. I haven't spoke to him for a while so I'm due to call him anyway.

    And mores the pity Ged,I can buy Appleton Estates but Four Bells is only bought aboard ship,unless it has become more freely available since Iwas at sea. It went down your throat like a warm cream and then warmed you right through when it reached your tum. Powerful stuff and priceless too. Any one out there know where you can buy it ashore?

    That is a shame - tell him we miss him.
    I think I first came across him on this site before the Sailors Home.

    Appleton's is OK but my favourites are Bajan rums. I can get by on Mount Gay but Cockspur is my favourite.

    I think the names of those two rums are a bit..........,one sounds like a command and the other a boast!

    Default A NAUTICAL QUESTION

    A lot of us have shopped at the Co-op but how many of you have shipped at the Co-op, and ,if you did,did you get your "divvy" when you paid off?
    Has anyone got any info. on the Co-op fleet?

    Default CWS

    I used to see the CWS PROGRESS in the Manchester Canal in the early fifties,
    She used to run from Manchester to Rouon near Paris. They had a small fleet of three ships but after the Progress went they finished with ship owning.
    The Master was Captain Hollingsworth who was quite well know for his excentric behaviour. One of them being, he had a rifle and would shoot at cows in the fields alongside the Canal. The Farmers could not understand how their cows would be shot every two weeks.

    What an incredible story.
    I am going to read it again slowly.
    Thanks for that Anonimouse, and welcome to the LIVERPOOL SAILORS,
    With a story like that he should be made Senior Ordinary Seaman.

    What a sad and pathetic individual. Under normal circumstances you'd pity him, but when his actions could have led to so many dead...
