Yes they are guinness boats one on the left is the Miranda Guinness and Im not sure about the other one maybe the lady Patricia. The miranda was the worlds first purpose built beer tanker and carried arround 1.87 million pints of guinness concentrate on a regular run to Liverpool. They say that Guinness doesnt travel well and I have to say and Im sure most stout drinkers will agree its not the same anywhere outside of Ireland.

Yes, The Lady Patricia - ran to Runcorn. Think The Miranda Guinness was the last ship built in Bristol.

The Guinness here in Australia is shocking Kotteman - only eever have one now when I return to Dublin each year!

I couldnt just have one pint of guinness should be drank in batches of at least 6, normal saturday for me would be a midday start half a dozen porters then a bowl of coddle with a couple of slices of batch loaf to reinforce the boiler then another half dozen and waddle off home to bed magic

I do not believe the one on the right is The Lady Patricia or indeed The Lady Gwendoline. Probably the The Lady Grania. The absence of derricks is one pointer to my belief.
