Remember Frank Sweet and the Indorita very well. From 1963 to about 1968, I worked for Frank Armitt & Son in Runcorn (Agents/brokers). I remember the first time I went on board. She was berthed at a high wall in the docks (about the same height as the top of her masts). The dock ladder was nearly non existent, and the only way I could get on board was to ask the stevedores to hoist me with the crane.Happy days. Health & safety didn't exist in those days. She was a regular at Runcorn loading bagged salt for Ireland.
