A murky day on the Tyne with the "Naess Louisiana" lying alongside the "British Skill" at Smith's Dock. Built in 1964 as a liquid sulphur carrier the "Naess Louisiana" was renamed "Nordic Louisiana" in 1973 and survived until 21 January 1997 when she arrived at Chittagong to be broken up.

Wasn't half as bad as the sulphur.....which turned the Gold Plate / Braid matt on the epolettes and Uniform....that was even inside your wardrobe. Sailed with Dave Aitchison on the "lousy"

Brings back memories - never sailed her or the Texas but spent 4 months in Port Sulphur on her during lay up. only 2 on board - catering allowance and company car. What a trip, never sailed, closed articles, painted the deck! Mardi Gras In New Orleans, fresh prawns plus great nights out in Sulphur, The Catering Allowance really helped. Only place I ever saw an armed guard at the rubbish tip!!!

Agree Dick many memories with the original 'Broads' landing at South Shields in the forground and what looks like Lawson Bateys tug 'Hillsider' at the buoy and you can just see the Fred Olsens Breamar or Blemheim top left at the Tyne Commissioners quay and Smith's dock in it's hayday.
I cannot remeber the number of times I fell in here learning how to scull a rowing boat out to my Dad tug 'Marty' at that time which also used to moor at these buoys.
