Maihar (1) 100 years in the water

I was looking up something on Russell & Co Port Glasgow when I realized the Old Maihar was launched on April 16th 1917. Hard to believe that I had sailed on a ship that was old at the time (1960). What a wonderful relic if she had been saved instead of being scrapped.

Did my first two trips with Brocklebank as 4th Eng. Off in good ship Maihar (1) just after a more or less rebuild. Will always remain with great affection as never let us down once. They do not make it like them now!

Her engines were built by J.& G. Kincaid at Greenock, the LP cyl was 84ins dia, and all rotated at a stately 61 RPM, 10.5 knots usually apart from one memorable pass thro' Straits of Gib. with the tide when we notched over 12 knots!

Stately aptly describes the motion of a VTE JP.

I used to have a really good packing knife, also used in later times for gutting fish.
Packing contained Asbestos of course, lubricated with Black Oil and Graphite via a long handled brush.
