Nauru - KY 10

Built in 1974. I think by Whitehall shipyard.
Became PH 5 in 1983 & converted to a beamer in 1985. Now de-registered & lying in Milford Haven.

PH5 in Plymouth skippered by Jimmy Stanley after he sold the Ard Patrick, twin engined from memory.
He's got Our Endeavour now a Cygus 33 with aft wheelhouse.
Where is the Nauru now? Decommed I expect

She was in Fife for a while.Owned by a guy called Jim Mc Clure I think. I also saw her once in Stonehaven in the late 70's I think....TD

Last thing I heard Nauru was laid up & stripped bare in Milford Haven harbour.
Powered by two 8LXB's with nozzles.
