Dave,

I was cadet on the Rhexenor (formerly Maron) in 1977. We berthed in Glasgow and out came the paintbrushes.....M boat became O boat! She was renamed Opobo, still looked like a Bluey though!

At the same time the Mano also had a visit from the paint fairies and became the Oti, a nice short name to paint!

Regards

Allan

Did I not read somewhere that when the four hatch forward M class came out they had to raise the wheelhouse as could not see over the bow when light?
