        May be some Business Tycoon could get a memorabilia thing going.

            So they had to spend an extra week in Malta!!
            Does anybody know if the ship will make an attempt this year (2008) hopefully with all the correct paperwork and red-tape sorted

            Connaught Stranger, In Transylvania, where the Garlic Roses Grow!!
            Could start a ballhop - add in a few other countries

                  Holy jeez, the old Hagenuk gear and the telex machine. I was on Aoife for their half life refit in 96 or so...two weeks left after six months of a refit and all we had in the MCO was a bench and the two EIYM wooden blocks for either side of the portholes! We actually went out on a day trip on trials with just a new Skanti VHF and a 77 set.
