    My maiden voyage, now was that your first trip to sea or your first voyage on a maiden, that is the question?

    Especially if it was one of the maidens that came to the ships from Monty's, Ma Gleesons or the Doghouse Bar or any other of the haunts of those distressed damsels.

    And if not damsels in distress to start with were most likely after some had finished with them.

    I too have enjoyed reading this thread.
    I decided to write chapters of life experiences for the benefit of my children. I thought theey should know what I had been up to in life, given that I had no clear idea of my own father's escapades.
    It comes quite easily and is a good therapy for the mind. Eventually - over a couple of years - I had a book, which can now be found at Amazon. ( amazon.com/author/desmiley ) The unusual career of a 20th century mariner.
    If you can't find it email <marineconsultancy@hotmail.com> and I will send you the final draft.
    My friends liken it to the reminiscing of a drunk sailor in the pub. That says it all!
