Lisbet Turkol

A coaster we used to come across frequently on the Bonny River in the 70s.
I heard that when she returned to Denmark she was wrecked.
Anyone any info on this ship?
She was Danish.

I recall that some of the crude carriers only had a freeboard of 11 feet, which could make for difficult re storing by boat in Cape Town. I think these were the smaller ones though.

There was a clip on the news the other day about the RN Fleet being vastly increased. I only caught it once, and might just have been an election ploy. I agree that we need more destroyers & frigates...

I could never get the hang of touch screen, or pads for that matter. A simple mouse does for me. It's the simplest and fastest way for me to point and click. Bring back XP I say!
