Palm Ship?

Hi all,
I am trying to trace the name and photo of a Palm Ship which was in Leith in early 1978.
I signed on with an SOS and signed off the next day.
Possibly the shortest stint ever.
Think she had seen better days and we could be pick our ships then.
She was heading for the west coast of Africa.
I have pictures of all my ships but not this one even if it was only for one night.

Best regards,
Jim
