New here - hello...
« on: December 26, 2005, 01:56:47 PM »
Hi all,

I've just found this site and thought I'd make a post to say hello.

I'm an ex-fisherman and Royal Navy member, and now have a passion for building scale model trawlers and fishing boats.

I have recently started a website dedicated to trawlers and fishing boats, and am seeking photographs of both models and real boats for use on the site.

I have a load of photos from my Navy days that I can upload to this site (none trawler related!). They include a series of photos of a major tanker explosion and fire in the persian gulf. I'll need to spend a few hours scanning them in though :-(

Anyway, my website is as follows:

Welcome from down under.

I look foward to seeing your pictures from the Gulf.  I have hope that you might allow me to use some of you images latter next year when I am doing a presentation for the Hobart Branch of the World Ship Socitey based on accidents, groundings,fires etc.

Regards

Hi Glenn,

You're more than welcome to use any of the photos that may be of use. I'll PM you when I've started to scan and upload them.

Thanks

I did a presentation like this last year, and I thought by the lack of feedback that most of our branches elderly members did not enjoy it and would have prefered a presentation of ships that have had misfortunes from back in the 1960's.  But last meeting I was asked if I would do another presentation on the same subject so I am putting it together at the moment and hope to show it latter in 2006.
