What were the other Ocean Weather Ships which were based in James Watt dock, Greenock?
Weather Advisor, Weather Monitor, Weather Observer, Weater Surveyor ......... Any more?

Ex Castle Class Corvettes. If I was informed correctly the Castle Class was an improved successor to the Flower Class, of "Cruel Sea" fame.

Yes, you were informed correctly. The Castles were indeed successors to the Flowers.
