    Mention of Piraeus always reminds me of the crew on the "Heathmore" buying 5 litre jars of wine. They sold the bottles on return to uk for more than they paid for them full.
    THe electrician, ? Smart was a keen super 8 film maker, so they got the chippy who had funny smile when into the turps, and rigged some plastic ie behind his eaars, he then poured a drink from the jar, put on his funny grin, and the the 2nd lecky blew smoke up the pipes so it looked like it was coming out of his ears. Very funny, and final film shown on a number of Furness/Prince line ships.

    Louis as long as you can make the people smile you are doing OK, never let them stop you.
