    Hi Peter.
    Welcome to the site, one of the best on the net for old salts. I had to look twice at your dates on the SS Ronde, 30 years on the one ship, might be some sort of a record on this site anyway.
    Enjoy your say, and post some of your memories on site.
    Cheers Des

    Default The Ronde

    I was on the Ronde around that time. We joined her in NY and ran aground in Tela. Really felt sorry for the Old Man (Capt. Denman) he was a gentleman. They flew us home and towed her to Galveston for a refit. Amazing trip it was, great bunch of lads on her, I think I still remember them all.

    I joined in galveston after that refit. My mate was on when they ran aground in tela. He was a steward Brian Digweed.
