Did eight trips on her 1964 until 1967. Easy going ship as far as the engine room went, salt water cooled, diesel oil fuel with gas operated fuel pumps.

Always wanted to sail on her. Visited her during a port call to Glasgow...how true were the stories Jim, of the "Tunnel Ghost" and the bullet hole in one of the desks. I recall she was scrapped in Contstanza as I sailed with one opf the Juniors who took her there (Dave King?)

Never met the gentleman, maybe someone had too many beers and saw old Charlie Ferns, aka Furness Ferns the old fireman and started the tale. Never saw any bullet hole in any desks, there was plenty of rust holes in the funnel. The Oakmore was scrapped in spain not Constanza, a regular port of call on the Black Sea run.
