Hello and Welcome Chris
Re. the "CARDIFFBROOK" .She went to a Greek Co. circa 1969 changed ownership in 1972 and lasted until 1983.The almost identical "CARDIGANBROK"
which was steam powered was scrapped 1970.In 1980 F.T.Everard managed or leased what was left of the "brookboats" and some loaded for the Falklands after the war there
