Ships I sailed on


In a period of some eight years or so I sailed on the following Merchant Navy vessels & in this order starting with "Matina" of Elders and Fyffes.;-

Whilst working at Land's End Radio, for twenty-odd years, I also fished for lobsters with my own boat and when I retired in 1992 I bought "Genesis", pictured here, a 21ft Cygnus and fished full time from Mousehole in West Cornwall. Unfortunately I damaged my shoulder after about 3 years (an occupational hazard with crabbers) and had to give up fishing - an occupation I had loved - out in the fresh air and every lobster pot brought to the surface was like opening a christmas present - and I worked 160 pots. I do miss the life.
