    Happy days indeed back then Billy,when the only "paperwork" that needed done was when ye were sitting on the sh*te bucket...that's why,before ye started tae read any book aboard a fishing boat,ye aye looked first tae see if a' the pages were there...some lads could be very inconsiderate at times ;) ;)
