    I was once put in a very embarrassing situation when I went on the bridge one morning. The second mate was doing chart corrections and his new wife was with him.
    They were a nice couple. from Yorkshire, and he had done his ticket in Shields.
    When I walked in the chart room he said, "hes a Geordie he will confirm it" "confirm what I said"
    "Is there such a word as winnits"
    "yes" I said.
    "There you go" he said to her, "its true, there is such a word"
    She said, "well what does it mean"
    I said "he can tell you" as I shot out the door.

    If you are lucky you will find it Gazinta all the best places and the best place of all we all know where it is.

    The first ship I joined, in Tilbury, Nov. 1969, got up to the outside alleyway at the top of the gangway when I heard this female voice coming from one of the cabins. Was most disconglomerated. Found out she was the 2/E/O's wife. The 2nd mate also had his wife and daughter on board. No problems. I was on a ship for 2 years running between Japan and the Gulf. At one point there were 6 wives on board, mine included. Only one bit of trouble when one of the wives thought she had "seniority" and decided to tell one of the lads what he should and could do. This was in the bar. The lad then told her in no uncertain terms that she should shut her ******* mouth, that she was allowed in the bar under sufferance and could quite easily be kicked out. She went off in a huff and complained to hubby. She was very quiet from then on as hubby told her the same. Apart from that though every body mucked in and enjoyed the trips. My wife was on board for 18 months of the 2 years which was great. As she is Japanese, it was like getting home every 3 months for us.
    Regards to all.

    There was the husband of my mothers cousin who had been at sea.
    By the time I was old enough to understand all about it he was on the Woolwich Ferry as Bosun.
    Just before I signed up he told me this.

    'You will find many females at sea who are not real females"

    That was all he told me, never elaborated on it. But i soon found out what he meant.

    But did have the 'pleasure' of some wives on the Windsor when I was officers steward, not always the best to have on board from what I observed.

    Going back to the Gizinta, you must be carful what Gazinta the Guzunda!!
