El Neptuno

In the area of Cape St Vincent 1964, Spanish Flag. I believe she was ex UK flag "Chatton", built 1925, Newcastle, with steam turbine machinery. Scrapped 1966.

They all look good on postcards. (Or from a disembarking pilot launch.)

And always check the lashings on the pilot ladder before disembarking,
DC power throughout,
no radar,
and bulkhead generators whilst in port.
