it was around 2000 when i last saw her, yes the roffen is now a prior ship, FRANCESCA PRIOR. she used to deliver aggrigates to battersea wharf, i live very close to this and i was a bit stunned when all movements at my end of the river seemed all of a sudden to stop.

As the ROFFEN she was owned by Alan Jenner and on long term charter to Priors; she was purchased in 2002 on Alan's retirement and as stated became the FRANCESCA PRIOR. She required extensive work and this was helped with a Freight Facilities Grant. ROGUL was sold by Alan Pratt in mid 2000 to Westport Co. Mayo, for fish farm work.

Is She Still Under The Same Name?

If you can trace ships that have gone to the West Coast of Ireland I would be grateful for details. As far as I know she is/was engaged on fish farm work, but getting any response to requests for information is to say the least, difficult.

Miramar is too all embracing to be accurate at this level, local knowledge and personnal contact are the only way to find out what is going on. Anything you turn up appreciated.
