When I was onboard the "Else Reith" in 1967 we ran aground with both anchors still housed, the reason that we ran aground was the 3rd Mate had fallen asleep. We were lucky that it was calm weather and it was a sandy beach on the coast of Danmark.
Yes she was a nice ship unlike the old Arklow series operated by the Tyrells which were all rust buckets as far as I know the newer ones which were built by Hugo Peters of Wevelsfleth are operated by the dutch version of Arklow shipping and seem to be better kept. I dont know if it was in Drogheda or Dundalk but the Vaterland got clattered by of the Arklow boats one night. Charley might know more.
