Message: I know exactly what you mean, Ken. On lookout, up on the fo'castle, on a night in the Carribean with the full moon making it as clear as day and a balmy breeze - oh! I come over all poetic! Or watching the flying fish in the Indian Ocean or the porpoises scratching their backs on the bow and then getting bored, it seemed, and then just shooting off and leaving the ship as if it was standing still! I'd better shut up before I make you all sick!!Date: 05:20, 1st February From: nesty wheatland Email:firstname.lastname@example.org City/Country: london
Message: when i think back to my time at sea i reckon that the best moments did'nt necessary come whilst ashore. i think of moments crossing the pacific on the way to kiwi. at the end of the day, having showered, had dinner then get an ice cold beer from the bar, before going on deck, leaning on the bulwark and watching the dolphin's dancing their own ballet through the water. standing there, with beer in one hand cigarette in the other watching the sun set over a cobalt sea. it had a very calming effect and to this day i think about it when i need to unwind.Date: 05:18, 1st February From: Bill Young Email:email@example.com City/Country: Sydney
Message: For those of you who know Sydney well, check out Rob Montgomery's photo of his ship Anadara coming into Circular Quay in early 1961. The AMP building is still only half complete, and it is the tallest building in the city skyline! The Opera House is just a drawing on an architect's board at the time.

Message: Ahoy There,
Was most interested in seeing the pictures of the Alang Ship graveyard, and noted the Poverty stricken accomodation Shanty like huts around, so I guess the workers would be onvery low money to pull these ships to bits, pretty sad to see our former Ships of Glory ending their days on Alang Beach.Date: 06:05, 29th January From: BAZ MUMFORD Email:firstname.lastname@example.org City/Country: DONNY,UK.
