Manor Park

Manor Park after a period of lay-up had her cargo handling gear refitted prior to departing I think for the Caribbean.

It looks like the photo was taken at Gillingham Pier & Wharf around low water.

Yes Gillingham Pier. MANOR PARK ex Quo Vadis-79, 492grt 670dw built 1956. Abandoned leaking off the Tyne on 12 Dec 1979 and subsequently declared a ***ulative loss due to extensive bottom damage and shell plate damage/wastage. Laid up/repairing at Sunderland/Colchester since Jan 1980 and latterly on the Medway since 1 Oct 1988. She was in the 'ownership' of Capt Andy Anderson who got her together for sale and she sailed King's Lynn for Guyana on 24 Feb 1992.
