I am interested to find out what happened to those two ships.
Sheridan, built in 1959 also sailed under charter to Booth as their Veras
Spenser, built the same year, was also chartered to Booth as Valiente
Anybody knows what happened to them afterwards?

Aristo,

If you go to the below site, all the Lamport ships are listed and their history if you scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the Booth Line funnel all the Booth ships are listed and their history.

I was 3rd Mate of the Sheridan, sister to the Spencer in 1967.


Kind regards

Chris.

Thanks for the link Santos but the two ships in question are missing from that site.

Thanks Gdynia, Sheridan (1961) was renamed Wes Point in 1981, Tomoh Satu in 1985 and was scrapped in 1993 in Singapore.

I was on SIDDONS 3, off No 301301 GRT1281 NRT 565 as 3rd Mate from Apr61 till Apr62, shortly after this she reverted back to Booths as the VERAS.
