    Very nice article of Molly Kool Carney. Very informative of her lifes career.. She was lovely as a young woman, and also in her 90's.. I bet she could tell a good story of her adventures...She looks like she had a very happy life on the Seas... Bravo to her..may she rest in peace..

    Fascinating story Reg, I wonder how many femake skippers there are today?
    Is it a life that appeals to the ladies out there? Let us know how you feel about being a leader in a one time "Mans" world ,l know from the calibre of some of the women I know that they would have coped well.

    How about Anne Bonney and Mary Read, two well know Pirate Captains.
    P&O had the first Lady Captain of a British deep sea ship and one or two coasters had ladies as `Masters`
    I have flown around the world with Lady Airline Captains.
    When I was in Esso`s 250,000 ton tankers we had female Cadets on deck, they found it difficult to do some of the jobs. When swinging on a 24 inch diameter valve one breast would swing under the arm and become trapped as she swung around the other way and she would end up in tears saying "my ti*s are too big for this job". some made Second Mate. When I was on the QE2 world cruise last year they had a very attractive lady Second Mate, I would never go for a smoko if they had them when I was a lad.
