(Starting to sound familiar yet?). He remained at sea with Athel Line, who later became Panocean/Anco and then Stolt Tankers, until 1989, working his way up from Deck Boy to Able Seaman. He left the sea to be with his young family, spending 20 years at Weetabix Limited in Burton Latimer as a Quality Control Auditor. Married to Shirley in 1978 and now a proud Grandfather to Callum, Connor, Rhiannon, Dylan, Faith and Alice he now works in a warehouse environment at a medical distributor in Corby, Northamptonshire.

A really good account of a young man's first trip to sea in the merchant navy. I do hope there is another one in his seabag.

A really good read hope John does a sequel to this.
Brought back so many memories of when I worked for Panocean (athel) and working with Jasper, some of the experiences so similar to my own. It was a part of my life I'd gladly relive.

Bought this book for my father who thoroughly enjoyed reading, the references to local social history mixed with the stories aboard ship had my father gripped. I was going to borrow the book and read myself, but i got a kindle for Christmas so i decided to buy the book as my first purchase. This book is excellent, it reels you in, you really can't put it down. I finished it in under 2 days without any bother, the fisherman sea shanty song literally had my crying with laughter. Its a wonderful book with lots of characters to get into and lots of nautical phrases that the author explains with ease. I do hope very much to see a follow up.

Strong language throughout the book with maritime humour and crude discriptive passages of a sexual and perverse mature but probably true to a life at sea.
