04/05/2017 - 12:42 Hi Kees, Looking for the whereabouts of a junior engineer named Mike 'Hands' Hardy who sailed with me on the Axina and came from Yarmouth Norfolk UK. I am at present living in Norfolk and would love to hear that he is alive and well. Ken Waterworth was the Chief Engineer on board at the time. Would appreciate any contacts who knew this lovely guy.

Returning from Curacao to Rotterdam to get married. The old man J.Charlton I believe, advised me to wait until I was older - should have taken his advice!

This was my prize for being good boy on the Plagiola. The chief engineer was a Scot and promoted me while on board.

Terrible time repairing leaking heating coils standing in asphalt up to your ankles.
