I think most if not all C3s had metal boats and gravity davits... the 2 United Netherlands that I have in my gallery both do...

doug rowland is right, strong possibilities of it being CP ex wartime 'Empire ' type which owned more than half a dozen of same, could be ' Beaverford ' or similar sisters, by the way were you in ' CS iris ' in 1986/87? seems a familiar name


Could be immigrants onboard a then immigrant ship in the 50's, just an thought

Hi,
She looks like a batch of ships built by Lithgows, at Port-Glasgow, at the end of WWII.
To compare, please see this pic of one of them, the French MONKAY : http://messageries-maritimes.org/monkay9.jpg
I didn't find a view from the stern of the other ships (EGIDIA, BEAVERBURN, DRYDEN, EEMDIJK, …..)
Regards,
Yvon
