What was the story here Hightide? I did 6 months on the south coast aggregate dredging on Chichester City and Amey 1 and remember this one ....or an earlier one .... and maintian an interest in those of the early 70's era.

Partially sank on the Solent Bank after dredging up live shells. Later converted to a Limestone Carrier re Hightide's comment and I believe now sailing on the South Coast as 'Norstone' regards

Hi Guys,
She was sold to R.M.C. North west to carry limestone between North wales and Liverpool, this was taken just before we delivered her to Liverpool, I think about 1981. Sorry but Ihave no idea of her subsequent career.
Regards Murray
