I don't recall ever seeing the Maythorn or Wilgo, at least not to photograph. Was she around in the 1980s?

\"Firethorn\" (built Waterhuizen 1967) was sold by Coe Metcalf in 1991 and became \"Angelus\" registered in Kingstown St. Vincent. Was sold to Caribbean buyers in 1994 and became \"Limerick\" and refitted at Cork Dockyard , derricks replaced etc. (originals not available) repairs paid in cash $$$ - Customs very interested. Finally sailed for Panama and I heard later came to a sticky end. I had a very strange couple of months in charge of repairs!!
