Some quite funny, He had to dump bilge from the engine room of the Esso Demetia to stop her from sinking. Demetia and her twin Dalriada were around twice the size of the Valdez

Being down in the keel, working on the bow thruster motors in a fully laden tanker - thus about 20ft below the water line when a Royal Navy sub radioed their captain to ask if they wouldn't mind being used for target practice. Nobody bothered to tell pops, so he was completely un-prepared for the ensuing sonar "PING" which he described as like having your head inside a very large church bell when it rings.

Being held up at gunpoint by the British Army & Royal Navy on several occasions...

and some not so great to be fair. If you click the link in the post about the Esso Mersey you may notice...

Quote:
Gas explosion at Fawley on 04/09/1991.
Sadly, the C/O and an A.B died.
A pump room explosion, the force of which went up & into the cargo control room and
exited through the forward starboard door at poop deck level.
He knew those guys quite well.

Anyway. Can't leave the post on that note, I'll leave you with some details on the biggest ship Esso had in service... the 516,000 ton, 406 metre long Esso Atlantic

In the mid 90's and she anchored mid-river and tendered with a Mersey ferry. She visited more than once and I have pictures (up north) of the plaques from the MD&HC and City of Liverpool which were presented to the ship commemorating the initial visit to the port and city.

Been advised not to post any pics on this forum or any other for a couple of weeks, as I'm sorting out a little problem, once and finally for all with a certain little toerag who uses my pics and plays the victim whenever I complain.

Anyway, no probs posting videos apparently, because the images are so low res.

Here's one from yesterday of the Mersey Inshore Rescue Sevice looking for Bernie Cook's car

Sorry to hear of your problem, Adman. Sadly you are not the first to complain of such matters.

Thanks v4. I wouldn't be surprised if you've had the same. Seems I'm OK posting maritime pics as his modus operandi is to steal urban shots, which will be the basis of my legal complaint.

When you get your hands on this "Little Problem" adman give him a good poke in the eye from me mate.
And if He's got Buggers Grips (Noddy Holder sidey's) pick him up by each one until his eyes start watering and say.."C'm ere yer bugger"..
Then give him 5 Kidney punches to the head.He wont pinch any more of your pics after that..Bastard.

Why Awayo ..can you not see every line of it is meant to be a Joke..

Are you serious ?....And what do you mean "For your own sake"
I have just got in by the way from the 08 event down at the New arena and have not had a drink all night.

Serious? Unfortunately I am. Adman is also being serious, he invites us to believe: about a real person in a real legal action, he informs us. Your post, especially in that context, looks like it might be viewed by some as incitement to violence. The law isn't interested in your idea of what is a joke or not. Stupid post, Ged.

Oh please Awayo mate. Never thought you as a drama queen. How can you think Gerard was serious about violence?

And the formality of your post as well? LOL!

I love it when scousers write out of character when they feebly attempt to add some gravitas to their posts.....I'm the worst!
