    That's exactly how I see it Rob. As soon as this 2/Offs antics became obvious and predatory he was on borrowed time. Pleased to say the company got rid of him also.

    I have been married twice and both my wives sailed with me. They enjoyed the trips but were well aware of the ground rules.In the bar most of the lads will mind the P&Qs. If they don't it is not my place to tell them to watch the language, someone else willusually do that.If they don't and we are feeling uncomfortable we will leave.
    If the langauge is being aimed at us you leave and I will deal with it. Not often was there any bother.
    The only time I can remember what could have been a nasty situation was with my now wife Karen. We were on the west coast of the states and heading for Vancouver.
    It was new years eve so we all had had a few. The usual happy new year and the Danish Electrician decided he would give Karen a kiss on the cheek no worries but then he decided he wanted a bit more. My Karen being a Merseyside girl dropped him like a stone, knee right in the balls. He never bothered her again as I think he got the message.

    John glutton for punishment , MK1 lasted 7 years, she insisted I left the sea, biggest mistake of my life. I worked ashore in Bowaters mill in ellesmere port. We were not getting on and I spotted an advert in the Liverpool Daily post for Engineers all ranks for United Arab Shipping Co. They had placed an order for 45 ships and were desperate for all ranks deck & engine. I walked into there then offices in the Corn exchange building and got offer a job there and then.Went home and told her I was off back to sea in a week.She said do that and I will not be here when you get back. Only mistake I made was not closing the joint bank accounts, cleaned me out.But to be out of that relationship was a blessing.
    Married to Karen now for 35 years, like everyone we have our ups and downs.

    To some degree I can agree with you about the 'camp' bit but to many first class female bloods on UCL they were a gift from heaven.
    Happy daze John in Oz.
