Peter, from Michigan, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia, it's good to have you onboard.
I believe she was an ore carrier. Two photos of her (#s 1 & 3) may be found here:

Peter, Firstly a warm welcome to SN - do enjoy the site and all that it can provide.

Secondly, it is quite confusing in terms of names, as the original Joya McCance was an ore carrier built in 1960 (sister to Mabel Warwick) and she changed her name to St Margaret in 1966 and sold in 1971. Meanwhile Houlders bought a Norwegian built tanker whilst under construction and retained her named Beauval – she was built in 1964 and changed her name to Joya McCance in 1966 (when the name became available). She was sold in 1976 and broken up.

COLOR="black"][/COLOR]Hi Mark,

thanks for the interesting information, i was going through David Duncan`s seamans book which noted the vessels name as,St Margaret in 1968, so it must have been the original Joya McCance vessel.
another question, in 1968 why on the seamans discharge book number there are different prefixes and what do they mean for example " Dis. A No. CAN 47243 while others have R34561, what does "CAN" or "B" represent?

thanks again

regards
Peter
