Hi Elaine and everyone else,
I have just had a look at the Exetermemories site, its brilliant, I always
find these behind the scene things fascinating.
It is a wee bit hard to believe some times that all this happened so long
ago and some of thouse wonderful people are no longer with us any more.
The picture of Howard Lang I found especially touching, its easy to believe
he's some where now still propping up the side of a ship with that grin on
Well thanks again Elaine for the link, you never know maybe down the line
more of these sorts of pictures will pop up.
Have a great day all.

Good morning "shipmates" …
Just found some more sites which have a tiny bit more on the Onedin
mories.co.uk/EM/onedinline.html – great pix and
some background info on the series.
covers many movies/TV series and for the ship-buffs among us could be
a source of great interest.
Not sure if this is true but I read recently that the Charlotte
Rhodes was destroyed by fire in 1980-something … does anyone have
any definite information?
Also read that Howard Lang died in 1989.
And I've been having a real wander about the internet to see if there
are any more DVDs/Videos past Series 4 and have come up with a great
And I did a fairly comprehensive search of surname databases and came
up with another blank. I really cannot find any entries there or in
telephone books for Onedin. Looks like it is not a surname with a
family attached. Given all the variations among surnames, it seems
amazing that someone thought up one which is unique. Does any lista
know anything definite on the surname Onedin?
Drat that we've finished watching all 4 series and wonder if we'll
live long enough to see series 5 to 8 given the great amount of time
taken to get even these out.
Have a great week 🙂

Important news for all the members of the group
Deryck who originally set the group
up has appointed me as moderator of this list.
We have encountered some unpleasant
spam messages recently and there have been inappropriate things like links
to betting and porn sites placed on the list's webpage.
Starting right now the procedure for
new members has been changed so that I have to approve anyone before they
can join the list. Also their first posting will be approved before it
appears on the list, this will mean that 99% of spam messages will be eliminated.
Also I've been to the management
page and removed the previously mentioned links that were on there. When I have
some time I'll go back through the message archive and get rid of any more I

you are all well, just to let you all know, I have a new

all to take a look at if you wish, myself with a
couple of Mike fans have
come up with this site, of course there will
be some Onedin link here, I
will be contributing this very shortly,
as of yet it is in very early
stages of development but I would be
pleased if any of you will come and
take a look it is at

Just checked out the item……..I would love to have something
signed by Howard Lang, my favorite character fron the OL.
Is any one else on the group going to bid? I wouldn't want to push
the bid up on a fellow list member.
The group has been a bit quiet lately but I know for me its just a
busy time of year, plus the extra hassle of selling and shifting
It was really neat to hear your comments on Mike, sounds like you had
excellent time, he really dose sound like a very nice guy.
Last thing, another big thanks to you Carie for all your effort and
time you put into the site, its very much appreciated!
my least favorite character would have to be the grown up Charlotte…….played
by I think Laura Hartog…….just a really annoying character all-round, sorry
sounds a bit harsh but to beat out Sarah on the moanometer she has to be pretty

[shiponedingroup] Update from the capture zone [was – Ice and
Good news I got my new capture card today and
I have had to give up on ice and fire at the moment
because of the poor

in a 480 Mb
file which will easily fit on a CD-r and will play with the

[shiponedingroup] Onedin Line Website
Hello Erika and
welcome to the group.
I can help with your query about what happened to
the Onedin Line
site. I also exchanged a number of e-mails with the
Gemma during 2002. There was a problem with something
illegal on the
site and it was closed down by BT just over a year ago I
I last heard from Gemma in February/March this year she
said the site
was in the process of being set up with another Internet
that she hoped to have it up not long after Easter. But
heard from her since and no sign of her website unfortunately
I hope for your sake that your TV station broadcast more than the
first six episodes. I wish someone would broadcast the whole series
again in the UK - you'd think with all the channels these days
