Built 1967 by Scotts Shipbuilding & Engineering Co. Ltd., Greenock.
8713grt. 507' 10" x 63' 2" x 29' 1".
She was sold in 1981 to Liberian owners, renamed AFRICAN DIAMOND.
Renamed PACIFIC AMBER in 1983 and broken up in Kaohsiung in 1984 at only 17 years of age....
I echo Tanker's remarks - truly a great shot of her.

Thanks guy's ...nice extra bits of info to add to her history.
Typical Bristol Channel weather again I see (should make Hendy feel at home) P.H. has captured the atmosphere very well in this shot...if any of you guys want the full size file for a background or whatever P/M me with your e-mail add and I will return it.

Will do Tanker time I speak with him.

Cheers Julian
