I sailed on the mairi Everard in the early 80s. She was a great little ship and I learned a lot about sea life. The captain was called Bilton and the mate was called Couch who was an ex trawler man. I joined the ship at Erith and did the bean run to Rotterdam before visiting the delights of Arkangel for timber, Ymuiden for steel and the delights of Dunkirk for coal to name but a few.
I also spent several weeks on the Ethel Everard and wonder what finally happened to her.
