Looking for any photos of the above vessels to complete a folio of ships I sailed on for my son. I sailed on them last when renamed Langelle and Fastelle

Don't know if it's of interest but the one-time Loch Maree/Langelle has just been sold for demolition in Bangladesh for $327.5/LDT. Her current name is Ice Music.

Cheers
Phil

Boy, did these ships have histories!

Without naming all owners names & flags here's how they went:

LOCH LOMOND 1975
AL ZAHRA 1981
FASTELLE 1984
GEESTHAVEN (2) 1986
STAR HAVEN 1993
PACIFIC KORU 1996
MARY K 1997 (this name was probably never officially used)
PATAGONIAN PRIDE 1997
As PATAGONIAN PRIDE vessel was detained for 192 days in Gdynia due severe structural defects in 1998
PATAGONIAN PRIDE was scrapped in India & arrived Alang 12.12.2000.


LOCH MAREE 1976
AL SALAMA 1981
LANGELLE 1984
GEESTCAPE (2) 1986
EASTCAPE 1993
PACIFIC GALA 1996
CLAIRE S 1997
RIO NEGRO VALLEY 1997
ICE MUSIC 2000 & scrapped as reported above.

The really tough time for these ladies was when they were in the ownership of Jimmy Jacoumis with some partners who lost a lot of money with their involvement.

Keep it cool!

Loch Lomond

I sailed on Loch Lomond (2nd Phase Deck Cadet) Have got some very nice 35mm slides of Loch Lomond up in the attic (including one featured on back cover of Denholm News Winter/Spring 1980 edition). Just bought copier to copy them to disc and will post photos once I find out how to use the thing.

Hi Ruud,

Am looking forward to being able to do something with all those slides. My wife and kids dread it when I say, "Anyone want to see what life was like at sea!"

If anyone interested, I should have decent photos of Denholm Ship Management ships, Wellpark, Loch Lomond, Coastal Corpus Christi, Nordic Clansman and a couple of Conon Forest (Havrais), and Gothia Team. Think I have a few Instamatic (remember those?) photos of Sevonia Team too somewhere.

Also have copies of Denholm News if anyone trying to find old stories:
Winter 1977/78
Spring 1978
Autumn 1978
Winter 1978/79
Spring/Summer 1979
Autumn 1979
Winter/Spring 1980
Summer 1980
Summer/Autumn 1981
Winter/Spring 1981

Ahoy Mike,
Yep we love to see them,post as most possible, always good to see other views of vessels/life on board; as for your wife & kids: 'Thanks to this life at sea, they gratitude this life nowadays living.
Yeah remember those Kodak Instamatics, handy cameras in those days, with those Square Blue Bulb Flashes on top of it.

Harbour bar, Golfito

Harbour bar, Golfito? Was that the place with the bar down stairs, and the knocking shop upstairs, which was open to the rafters and split into lots of individual cubicles, where (if you were lying on your back with your eyes open: best not done!) you could see the rats running round the top of the partitions and hear your shipments working off their energy nextdoor? Harbour bar, Golfito....never heard of it!!!

Golfito......such fond memories.

As`we pulled up the hook leaving Golfito on Loch Lomond I discovered we had a 25 ft steel barge sat evenly across both flukes. I'm sure there was nothing below us when we let go coming into port! Remember a turtle eating a bunch of floating bananas in the port..............
