Yes I knew the Shetland Trader and Charlie - Charlie Groundwater from Stromness was Mate and Captain for many years before going to Northlink Ferries. We went to school together with his brother James and his Grandfather was headmaster off Strommness school.

I used to see the Shetland Trader when on the Leith to Shetland run as Second Mate on the ROF Beaver in the early 1980's, I seem to remember she carried a lot of Becks or Grolsh beer!! Does anyone have any photos of the Beaver, she was a funny looking ship?

I did have a quick visit onboard the ship just before Christmas. Faversham Ships are doing their best to keep her in good shape. The ship does work hard.
