The only weight carried aboard this fine vessel is around the Navigators midriff. We in the whirly-whirly department earn our crust by the sweat of our brow and are as thin and fit as a butchers greyhound.

As T says, Billy Bunter never pulled a nurse.

All injuneers knobs are highly polished at ALL times and in fully prime operational condition.

I prefer the first handle however this is the one actually attached. So:

Have at you! - damned denizens of the dark and polishers of pig iron.

(See you in the forward cocktail lounge when you knock off?)

It's not often you buy, so we will accept your kind invitation.
We really are as thin and fit as a butchers dog so Tab-Nabs won't be sufficient. T is very fond of a fork-supper, beef curry or chicken a la king generally pleases. The carpet can be a bit of a disaster area in the morning but the Piss-Pot-Jerkers always have it clean and sweet smelling for Smoko.

I feel a bit of a thirst coming on.

I'll have you know Pa taught me always to stand my round (even when it was from the pocket money he supplied). If you have not caught me in the chair then it was probably because you were stuffing your faces. Fork supper? You'll need a better excuse than dinner medals to avoid eating in the saloon, in rig of the day, properly laundered.

What you eat is between and the chief plastico's neatly tryped menu de jour. How you eat it is down to Sir W and your fellow orifices. Gum boots and birthday suits are strictly for the OSSP (Olympic sized sudgee pail) NOT for the saloon or smokeroom.

(You don't think the arseh...… Port state control will fine us for having a smokeroom do you. Prepare to dock their case and cartons).

Don't start me on Port State Control. I could write a book, and probably will.

Have a word with Mr Varley. He likes Port and likes to control the state of it.

Careful sampling and comparison must be done.

I sympathise with you T, but NO you can't.

A more unedifying spectacle than a McCooey trying to manage Guinness, fried egg, black pudding and fried soda at a Cock&Arse would be hard to imagine. FJ and V would be mortified, V tries to maintain Denholms standards in the smokeroom. Red Sea Rig and all that but, alas he just don't have the savvy fair to carry it off. Sad really but living in a social backwater doesn't help. IOM twinned with the Bayou's off Louisiana in that respect, but yet to mess with cousins.
