    It's pretty tough declining anything when you are starting out as a skipper so good on him for doing so if he thought that was the best course of action. It's difficult striking a balance between managing & progressing defects (which every vessel has) and putting up with unacceptable safety issues. It's the hardest part of the job. Hope he has every success in finding further work.
    It took hime considerable effort to get the company to provide up to date charts!

    His latest employment is as a safety boat skipper in the Nigg Bay new harbour. Bit boring!
