A brillant photo Kenny, deserves some details ----- Built by Scott and Sons, Bowling in 1967. Sold and became SULTANA 1 in 1984, SUZYMAR in 1984, CLEOPATRA STAR in 1985, TAMARA 1 in1990 and JOELLA in 1993, owned by Etablissement Paul Adem, Beirut, Lebanon and as far as I know is still trading as such. 62.24 x .73 x 3,899 m. 777 gt. 442 nt. 1056 bhp. 12 kn. Your photo must have been taken just before or after the 14th March 1983 when she arrived in Dundallk on the am tide with a cargo of coal from Garston and sailed on the pm tide the next day. Captain Willie McCrea in command... she was also the first ship I put a pilot on when I started work here -- 29th Nov. 1978.. Charley

Thanks for all the information John, photo taken 30th, March, and skipper was Wullie McCrea. She had been at the Bank Quay with coal.
I'm away looking for the Joella now.
