Early Career

Upon leaving music college to head into the precarious business of being a professional musician Ian was fortunate enough to get a job as a cruise ship musician. His first trip on board ship took him to such 'exotic' destinations as Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Acapulco and then a season up in Alaska. Some UK touring followed but Ian was soon to head out for a season up in the Baltic followed by a run out to Hawaii and the South Pacific islands.

Moving onto P&O Lines s.s.Canberra saw the start of a 12 year stint during which Ian became a qualified PADI Scuba Instructor. Following a trip to Mombasa on a Round World Cruise the seeds were sown for the first Landrover purchase which was a 1982 109" diesel hardtop. This was kitted out and completed a trip to Morocco.
