There was an extended article, with a lot of pics, in "Ships in Focus Record" within the past couple of years - don't recall which one off hand, but I'll look at home tonight (if I remember) and will post the details later this week.

Cheers

Definite memory lapse, the article on the Bowater fleet actually appeared in SIFR Nr 5 (Feb 1998), with a follow up in SIFR ( (June 1999)

A bit more than a couple of years !

1962'ish Had a great stay in Charlestown SC alongside Nina Bowater, joining Captain and Officers for a cracking party with staff members of the Charleston Post newspaper.
Happy days.

Whatever happened to this fleet of special ships?
Does the company have their Mills in Newfoundland still.
I worked with Bowater-Scott in Australia in the mid 60's as a Salesman selling Tissue Products.(a JV with the Scott Paper co of Philadelphia)
We had nothing to do with Newsprint.
Would be interested to know.
Regards,
David D.

Would this be the ship you seek? My info is that this is a 1961 ship?

I think the link quoted by Doug H at #2 above should read:
