I rememberas with a brand new certificate boarding the Hemiplecta with some fear in the knowledge that "Butcher Shaw" who had a fiercesome reputation was Master. First day out he swaggered on the bridge wearing a his trademark...a 'Lungi' and the first words he addressed to me were "Hells Bells we have a b----- scouser on the bridge and they cannot play football either" It was little more than a wind up which I enjoyed many many happy watches under his command.

the old man was an ignorant pig while tying up at pulo bukom he and i had a tremendous fall-out. after that he left me severely alone. he was a dour scot from somewhere west of aberdeen & was tighter than a frogs primary orfice. his nickname on the hemiplecta was fenderbelly and he smoked in his toilet. not a nice man. in fifteen years i only sailed with one worse, but thats another story.
