    Can someone tell me the name of Popeye's boat in Dutch please.
    The English name is 'Sea Witch', but I don't think it is a literal translation.

    For background, it is the name of a bar/restaurant near the harbour in Oostende.

    I don't think that's it, as I said, it isn't a literal translation.

    I think it is T'Zee..... but I don't remember heks as the next part.

    That's the one, it is owned by a friend of mine, although I haven't seen him for years. Every time I have been to or through Oostende it seems to have been his night off (for some reason I always seemed to go on a Tuesday). Last year, I finally thought I would meet him again, it was a Monday, and the receptionist in the hotel I was stopping at knew his new bar/restaurant. But when I got there, I found out that he now has Monday and Tuesday nights off, so I missed him again.

    Edit: now that I know the name, I have managed to find a write up about the place, I didn't realise it was supposed to be an Italian restaurant (but I should have guessed since my friend is Italian by birth) because about the only thing I saw being served was steak, and I didn't eat there because there was about an hour's waiting time.

    Many thanks for your help, Nigel.

    btw, I don't think he would take too kindly to ketchup on pasta
