I sailed on Gulf Briton not long after Denholms took over running from Watts Watts. There were a few chaps on her from the company. It's forty years now but I remember the Leckie, one Tom Bogie. He had been with Watts Watts for years on the W boats. A couple of engineers were Chief Mad Mike Morrison whose life revolvde about distilled water and the second Malky Davidson, the Galloper who went everywhere at high speed. They al spoke highly of the former company. She had British crew but I only remember the engine lads who were almost all off the pool.
