Greetings,

I think she is the Rosetti launched on the 11 June 1956 at Pickersgills Southwick yard for Lamport and Holt. She went on to become

1963 BONIFACE Lamport and Holt
1967 ROSSETTI Lamport and Holt
1970 BONIFACE Booth SS Co Ltd
1973 AMARYLLIS Hydra Nav Co Ltd Piraeus
1978 ZEFYROS Imerama SA Piraeus

and was finally broken up at Kaohsiung 22.8.79 [Nan Jong Iron & Steel Co]

(Data from Miramar)

I think she is older than that, and looks like a classic WW2 standard type, so I would suggest CROMWELL PARK, completed in 1945 by Burrard Dry Dock Co., Vancouver, for the Canadian Government. She became HARMAC VANCOUVER the following year, stiil under Canadian flag, and in 1948 was sold to Amaryllis Shipping Co. Ltd., Panama, who renamed her AMARYLLIS. She was obvoiusly no stranger to Eastham, as she was wrecked just north of Lake Worth Inlet, Palm Beach, on 7.9.65, while on a voyage from Manchester to Baton Rouge in ballast.

I agree with you Graham, she fits in with the Cromwell Park.
As you say no stranger to Eastham.

Regards
Keith
