    Thanks for that link Doc I have wondered for many years which Bowater ship I visited and met the 2nd.steward on in 74 in Cornerbrook I had previously sailed with him in 68, a bloke called Albert pennel the crew list on that link answered that for me.

    Nice one, reminded me of a Shell tanker, I joined in 68, went on tour of ship and in galley I saw a fried egg on a plate in a redundant grill, looked all dried up then but thought maybe one of chinese crew was letting it mature a bit.
    It was still there six months later, so must have been well matured by then I wud have thought.

    Recall some wooden sidewalks and bat-wing doors on one bar.
    Bit like the old west, but colder.
    Could also drink after hours.Always knew where the Mounties were. They never gave us any trouble.
    How about that Screech!!

    Hi Denis,
    I like your post, this is a long time after, I remember those days in Corner Brook. The problem with the over boots was that every one took them off in the lobby and when you came out drunk... some times you got a better pair going back to the ship than you came in with.
    The Screech was like "Fire Water" did you ever attempt "Seal Flipper Pie"
    I was in and out of Corner Brook for two years on the Nicolas Bowater and had many friends there in the old days
