Well, thank you for having me aboard...I notice, your Admiralship that your post count has been restored; does this mean you are no longer on the naughty step?

Edit: well it was for a minute..

Yep, we all got fed up getting covered in coal dust every time we had to coal ship and it's very difficult to get anyone to work as the 'black gang' nowadays

No Mr Granite,you have missed out an "O" after the "N". Tis a converted oil tanker me thinks.

All the fruit and veg bought, including a large pile of strawberries, for just 5.50.

Now for that restful afternoon I've been trying to get (unsuccessfully) all week.

OOPs!

Someone's sunk another one!

From the Mail report on the Yogi sinking
.... but it would have been an uncomfortable phone call the captain would have had to make to the as yet unidentified owner.
Presumably in Russian?


Tried to find more on the ship name and came across this site. Is it run by Mr. D.?

edited to add, there was a naughty in the website name so it's been deleted.

They can carry two of these and launch against the nasties.
