Was made redundant on passing my Class II at Warsash - tankers were to be the big thing!

After B & C went with Swire Pacific Offshore, 1981 to 1985, as Chief Mate - worked on anchor handlers and well stimulation vessels, offshore Brazil / West Africa / Gulf of Suez / Persian Gulf / South China Seas etc.

Laid off in 1985 as price of oil dropped causing fleets to lay up.

CI Shipping were taking over the Fyffes M Boats and the SA Tzaneen & Hexreviers for trading to the Gulf, so joined for one trip as 2/O as I had PG experience.

Then went mate, did Masters 1987 then was master from 1993 - 2005 on the Denadai Reefers.

Now work for the UKHO as a Marine Advisor in Marketing.
