    Unhappy Re: Sugar Boats

    I wonder if 'jimmys ' , aka Jim Smith?,the originator of this thread is still alive. His name is crossed out in his thread posting # 1 ,and I think he left this site under a cloud,quite a few years ago now I imagine. I think he was also ill perhaps. He was an ex Chief Engineer or superintendent and lived in Glasgow.He was quite a knowledgeable but self-opinionated chap if I remember -mind you that's not unusual here (!),and he reminded me of many a Scottish Chief Engineer I had sailed withKilt.gif Engine.gif I bet he made the lives of the junior engineers a nightmare ! They don't make them like that anymore though ,do they?

    Gulliver.Davey I think "jimmys" and Young Jim were both barred off the site around about the same time.I know that there were a couple of Jims at the time that is why I signed Jim.B.

    Right Jim.I feel like the sadly deceased 'Young Jim' as he was known was ex catering department and from Grange-over-Sands,Cumbria. Strangely enough,like chief engineer Glaswegian 'jimmy s' I do think he was also called Jim Smith, .We certainly had a few entertaining ding-dongs on site with him as well. He was a very good friend of Tiger 1 (Jean) if I remember correctly.
    These we have loved...

    To me you will always be recalled as 'Liverpool Jim' in my mind.

    Best Regards
