Was Dundee her name or Port of Registry?

Dundee was her port of registry - I think she was officially registered as the ANER but the name never appeared on her.

Thanks for that kind Sir. The reason I asked was because I have always been under the impression that maritime law requires the name of the vessel to be painted on the bow and on the stern.

Why was the proposal to rename her ANER never carried out? I appreciate that she was confined to the River Tay and I understand .operated latterly without an up to date BoT loadline. Did they have other plans for her?

The name Aner was painted on her Port Bow but from what I can gather it was never registered due to Ian Dutch selling out to D & R Taylor. David Taylor wanted rid of the steamers as they were uneconomic! The Perth boats at that time were not allowed under loadline exemption to operate east of Newburgh. The Dundee boats could not operate east of a line from Carolina Port to Tayport. The BOT came down on them hard after the loss of the Islandmagee and then the Little Orme sank off the Fowler Rock!

I found out today that it was insurance costs that killed off the sand trade at Dundee and later Perth. The underwriters didn't like sand suckers, especially the time expired ex coasters that we had around the Tay!
