These ship were regulars in the Tyne. I piloted The Castle Point 6 time up till Jan 1986, The Dolphin Point 10 times up till March 1986, The Fort Point 13 times up till Jan 1986 and the Beacon Point 9 time up till september 1985. These dates are around the time the New coal terminal opened on the Tyne a new breed of bigger Collier took over the shipping of coal down to the power stations of the south.
