Hello Robert, Yes, I do remember the Mapledore, I sailed in the Stratidore in 1960, with Capt. Taylor who, had previously been master on the Mapledore, he often talked about his old ship and running coal up the St. Lawrence and having to anchor if the tide was against them as she couldn't make sufficient way. I believe that she had focsle accom for the crew. Capt. Taylor seemed to a nice guy and enjoyed having a yarn while puffing his pipe. Bruce
