To finish ( I dont know what happened) & left her in Avonmouth 6th Feb 78.A Great sea ship & very comfortable.We sailed deep sea from Birkenhead 5th Sept 77
to East Africa via Suez.Lots of delays Port Sudan 19 days at Anchor, Mombasa major delays,also major delays Dar es Salaam.She was sold later that year (31.7.78) and as terence says renamed Tyne. Yes she as a fine looking vessel.
Yes its No 5 West Float in the Birkenhead dock system, usually called 'the New Berth'. As Makko said it is on the Wallasey side of the dock but technically is in Birkenhead. This was the loading berth for T&J Harrisons and Hall and City Lines East African service.
I used to drive the cranes at this berth fairly frequently in the late 60s
The cranes are demolished but the transit shed is still in use storing steel products unloaded at Cavendish Quay on the far side of the West Float
