    Good find Larry, As I am getting older, I like to cook for myself, must be in my genes, my father was a cook aboard some of the ships on the great lakes, and with them sailors you had to be a good cook..or get thrown overboard..

    I am looking for some good quality cutlerey, any ideas of what is good out there?...I know some can be expensive, but at this point in my life, I don't care, I just want some good knives..

    Another is Wusthof which i see they handle as well. There are several others of course.

    The cost of these varies widely, so shop around. Sears, WalMart etc. sometimes have great deals on sets.

    Thanks for the info Larry, about the knives..Yes my Dad loved his job, but he was gone from home in the early spring until early November for a lot of years..He was on the James R. Barker.
    This ship was one of the 1st 1000 footers..He was aboard in 1977 or 1978......and retired not to long afterwards..Here is 2 pics, one of the ship and one of the galley menu for a typical lunch..

    Hi chevyman


    Quite the Ship that. The time at Sea does have its drawbacks re Family life, but the pay is good to be sure. I had a Buddy who worked them for years as an Engineer. He finally married and left the Boats. I ran into him a year or so later and he laughed and said the Biggest Mistake he ever made

    He said She Never Stops Talking

    Menu looks Good They do feed them well on-board. You don't want unhappy Sailors now do ya.


    Have a Good one
