    seafarers

    hi everyone, after the very sad loss of freddyboy i read his new build thread (all 176 pages) and realised he worked at sea as do a few others and was wondering are there any seafarers still on the forum ? i was at sea for 30 years, 20 years with RFA and 10 years with NERC.

    Maybe the real question should have been, not did you get to the Antarctic but did you get up to any Arse antics?

    So you've seen a lot of the world in your time?

    Have you gone north enough to see the northern lights? Some say it's a bit scary the first time you see them

    I was shown round the Cook a couple of years ago when it was back at base in Southampton, noticed a load of DVD’s in the Rec room that looked like pirates to me

    so you got to look round one of the most advanced scientific research ships in the world and you noticed dodgy dvds, did anyone show you the golden rivet dvd ?
