It may be that some of the ships were in fact customers of the Denholm agency in Greenock. Gastor for example was laid up in Loch Striven for 20 years with her sister Nestor, Blue Flue of course.

These are both now in service as LNG Lagos and LNG Port Harcourt.

The Sugar vessels were regular callers in Greenock.

Thumbs up Welcome

tumble38,

Thanks for that. Did you notice the recent photographs and threads covering the loss of CP Glory - one of Seatrain Saratoga's sisterships?

I see you have been registered with SN since Dec 2004 so I'm delighted that you have chosen to make your first post in the "Diamond D" thread.

Keep at it and join in with some of oue banter.

Denholms Ship Management Ships

I was an engineering cadet on the Burmah Legacy in 1982 also served time on the Cast Narwhal. Other ships I sailed on with Denhoms were the Afran Sky,Merchant Pioneer and the Wellpark.I noticed some were missing from your list.

The Burmah Legacy at the time was the biggest tanker to enter Sydney Harbour and we just managed to clear the Bridge! Was on Channel 9 news, the first of many contacts with the press in my time at sea! On route from Mobile we were placed on stby to go to the Falklands( or so we were told?),but we were replaced by the Atlantic Conveyor and we all know what happened to that one!

Have just read some of the posts and it brings back happy memories of my time with the Diamond D. ships I was on included Eden Bridge(my reliefe was killed after only a few days when he fell down a hold or tank).Nordic Louisianna - stood by her for 4months in Port Sulphur, with a 2nd Engineer when laid up. Broompark twice(always seemed to end up in the Great Lakes and Australia!) Clunepark was my first trip with DD in the early 70s Lloyd was captain. I did a trip on the Nordic Clansman but that is a complete blank except for the hydrolic indicators not working and having to put my ear to the pipeline and listen for the valves opening/closing. Happy days!etc etc etc. What I remember most is the great people I met all characters and all good shipmates.

sorry did not mean to Rabbit

Enjoy life Dick

Dick,

Was the 3/O who fell to his death on Eden Bridge "Stevie Saunders?"

I sailed with Stevie on Erskine Bridge and by coincidence, a week or two ago John Cassels and I were trying to remember which ship Stevie died on.

Ray,

Stevie Saunders and I were for for 2/M in Glasgow together. Fine fellow for sure. He owned one of those small and dangerous 3-wheeled vans. He rolled it one day coming to college. The topside was ground away to nothing but fortunately...in this case... Stevie did not have a seatbelt on and he was thrown from the wreck. He was in hospital for for a few weeks. He was killed on his next ship. If you have any old Denholm News handy, the story was carried in Ship News... I guess around Simmer 1975.

Stephen,

Yes, thank you for the confirmation. Dick S has also sent me a PM which ties in exactly with what you wrote.
If I remember correctly, Stevie was from Barnsley and was proud of his membership of the "Royal Antediluvian Order Of Buffaloes!"

Welcome to SN Dowling and more specifically to the Denholm thread.

I don't think I met you but I certainly sailed with your Old Man on Troll River.

He was our Lecky - big bearded guy with glasses, and always game for a yarn or a laugh!

Scraping the barrel here but didn't your mother sail with him too? Was her name June?

Denholms - J&J, Offshore etc

Hi Gulpers

Joined denholms in 1966 as Engineer Cadet, left Anglo Eastern in 2004 as base manager for NATO Research Vessel ALLIANCE.( AE had taken over /merged with Denholm Ship Management in 2003.)

During time with Denholm sailed on following - Naess Endeavour, Naess Sovereign, Nordic Texas, Muirfield, Scandia Team, Novergia Team, Euroliner, Eurofreighter, Nordic Louisiana, Chemical Venturer, Subsea Canopus, RV ALLIANCE.

The last two were managed by Denholm Offshore from Aberdeen and then transfered back to Denholm Ship Management in Glasgow.

Have pictures of most of these somewhere, apart from the Endeavour and Sovereign as I was a poor cadet and couldn't afford a camera.

Graham,

A warm welcome to the site, I guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy the SN experience!
You will certainly spark many happy memories when you have a chance to explore our threads and, who knows, you may even re-establish contact with old shipmates.
Good luck!

Hi Ruud
Just seen your note on the Crystal Cube the pic looks like the one on Brian's site. I placed the other one on his site the one running with her up to Duluth in the Lakes. Good trip and very interesting with regards to the seamanship working the Locks. The St. Lawrence and the Welling Canals would make a good thread. Anyway thanks for the offer of the pic, much appreciated

Hi Gulpers

Looking foward to the completed list of Denholm ships. The Naess Endeavour just does not seem to get much of a mention. I spent my first 6 months at sea running to the Gulf and back to Rotterdam. It was not what I thought the sea was all about, but it all changed when I got away from tankers.
