Pity I missed it. Nose is still streaming now, so good job I kept myself warm inside.

The food compared well, but the service was a bit more abrupt. But that's Yorkshire for you :lol:

Hi guys,

I really enjoyed the experience. Know new people (for me) and seeing guys from December Limes meeting. Very happy.

I've had a Full English delivered by air and by boat :lol:


By Air - Spent half the night fighting a fire on a Dutch Merchant ship. Fire out, Full English and tea delivered to the fire fighting teams by the ships paraffin pigeon :D

By boat - French Yacht that we found in distress in the Western Approaches (it had been knocked down 2 or 3 times the in the previous evenings storm), lone yachtsman was taken off and spent the night in the sick bay.

Myself and two others pumped out and repaired the boat & rig and sailed it back to Penzance overnight with the ship following.

Full English & flasks of tea fresh from the galley delivered by the ships RIB the following morning, two hours out from Penzance :D

Looking back on it Dave it probably was, but at the time it was just part of a long list of similar events that went with the job.

There was an equal amount of boring days and tasks, you do not know what boredom is until you have kept a lone gangway middle watch (00:00 - 04:00).
