    On a ship in my time dog nautically would be a Dog Watch, dogging a hatch, or dogs on a watertight door, and other sayings which others may add. However the "Dogs" in question were four legged animals family pets. Jeff you can google nautical terms and find things like log line, which was not a line of timber but a ships speedometer. Happy searching. Regards Roger (M)

    Then of course there was the worst log of all.
    The one the old man gave you for a number of offences.

    Hi Jeff.
    You may have tried this, but most major newspapers from that time used to list ships arrivals and departures in ports of Australia, nor sure about passenger lists; so there maybe some evidence in the local Library in Freemantle,or Perth, they usually have them on Fitch.

    Most of the Port Line,Union-C astle cargo boats etc. carried 12 to 24 passengers and I understand the fare was between Tourist and First Class on passenger liners in the 1940 /50s. I have been told that some container ships also carry passengers in excellent conditions but with a long wait for bookings.

    Terry, there was a few years back a company in London that could organize a passenger berth on cargo and container ships.
    One of our earlier members wrote about a voyage he had done in such a manner.

    According to him you could change from ship to ship as long as they were of the same company.
    If I recall he was on one for about four months.
