Barmyclaresdad, I made a poor decision not to sign on with the Booth Line ship called Basil for a trip up the Amazon, something I still regret to this day a seriously missed opportunity. I took a CPR ship called Beaver Ash up the Gt Lakes, great trip but hey still regret Basil. This was I think in 1964/5? There was Hebrides Islander called ..Hector McPhail (spelling) on deck I believe? Is there anyone out there who went up the Amazon on that trip, or any trip up the Amazon on her? I am sure it would have been a terrific trip. Does anyone have a picture of her? I recall she was at St Catherines dock?
