I am responding to a request from a gentleman by the name of MR. Gill. I sailed on the s.s point Susan , but I am not sure on the exact year,though it. May have been around 1979 or 1980. I was not on there very long as I got injured when a mooring line come close to cutting me in half while in Boston Harbor.
I unfortunately do not recall many of the names of crew members, but I never forget a face. So please forgive me if I can’t place who you are. I wrote in years ago about making a trip to Egypt aboard the s.s. poet before it’s final voyage, I do remember a few good souls aboard the ship including capt. Warren, the ship was so run down, rusted, and in need of much repair.
I recall reading about the strange disappearance when it happened, I feel the ship same as the PT Susan should have been taking out of service when the condition becomes obvious,and sometimes beyond repair.
I pray the families and loved ones can find peace and comfort somehow thru all this
It’s just sad we live in a world where money and greed seem to rule the road of life.
Hope all who have sailed and those who continue to sail are doing well and keep their brothers and sisters of the sea alive in their hearts
