A proper, proper cargo ship, many happy memories. Looks like a shot taken when she was on her trials.
Cheers,
David

Agreed - lovely ships as ships used to be. Sadly, her previous namesake was torpedoed by U-103 on 22nd September 1941 when sailing as part of a homeward-bound convoy, West Africa to UK.

I believe this ship was invovled in a nasty collision in the English Channal in approx 1960, in thick fog and the forecastle head look-out was killed.

Yes Jon, you are correct
The Niceto de Larrinaga was involved in a collision with the French flag tanker Sitala in September 1961 in dense fog just north of the Casquets. Unfortunately there were two fatalities on the Niceto, which ship was later found to be at the major fault through excessive speed.
A good photo though of a traditional British tramp, thanks for posting.

She was an unlucky ship. She was later involved in another collision, off Waglan Island, Hong Kong,and again in fog, in February 1967. The other ship, owned by U.S Lines, struck her on the port side in way of No. 3 Hold and cut her open right down to the bilge margin plate. Taikoo Dock fitted a temporary strongback bridging the twenty foot opening in the weatherdeck to allow the cargo in the other holds to be discharged; this was later reloaded to the 'Apsley Hall'. The cargo in No.3 lower hold was mainly bagged Tapioca Flour for the US and it turned truly glutinous.It was eventually dug out by hand onto the drydock bottom from whence it was transported to lighters and a salvage buyer found for it. I remember it well because I did the General Average survey.
