Gosport

Stevie Clarke's Gosport is seen at Gateshead's Baltic Mills in 1972. Since her graduation from being a full time collier, somebody has provided her with a full set of cargo handling gear. I cannot remember others being so modified but that may just be the passage of time. Built 1952 she had always been a handsome little ship and was 1,824 gr tons.
