The look on our faces does not reflect the usual atmosphere. I assume we hadn't changed a piston liner in a couple of days and were starting to get bored. Copyright © Dave Smith.
Thanks for the photo. It certainly brought back memories for me. On passage home from Australia, whilst bunkering at Capetown, Alec Adamson's wife joined us. He had been busy tidying up his cabin ready for her arrival on board. However, whilst he was ashore meeting her, some of the reprobates got into his cabin and "roughed it up". Often wonder what his reaction was when he unlocked the door. Finally, you must remember the way we "side swiped" our way up the Clyde! All good stuff. John Cann. Posted on forum 14 February 2012.
