Ah.  My first “laptop” 30 some-odd years ago!  And my first ship inspection with Watson and Jacques.


I can’t believe the time has flown by so fast.  When I graduated from Conestoga College in Kitchener 35 years ago, there was no way I could have imagined what a wonderful job offer I accepted.  My circumstances became very unique because of Jane’s health problems that began in earnest about 15 years ago.  I am so grateful to have worked for, and with, a group of people that have been so accommodating.  It has been a real privilege working with so many professional, respectful, kind and compassionate people.   I cannot thank you all enough.


Many have asked what my plans are for the future.  Well, I plan to improve my guitar skills and do a little bit more travel.  But for many years, Jane and I have both enjoyed working together in the community doing volunteer work for an international organization.  Our primary goal is to focus more on that work to the extent that Jane’s health will permit.  Our web site which is currently available in 951 languages, explains the nature of our work.


If you’d like to keep in touch, my phone number is 226-663-6451 and email is


So, for the last time,  Inspector 018 signing off… “Over and Out”… Just kidding.  I really mean “Out”… (don’t worry, I’ll never forget proper radio operator procedures!)
