There were two incidents concerning two Rowbotham Tankers straddled across the Nene at different times in the 1960s, The Anchorman and the Tillerman I believe that there are photos and comments about both incidents on this site. The Tillerman became permanently sagged after the incident. If I remember correctly there were two pilots on the Nene, sometimes if there were more than two ship movements on a particular tide, the captain on one of the ships would be asked if he wouldbe willing to follow up, I believe that only occured with regular traders to the port. One of the pilots, was an ex Rowbotham captain, I have forgotten his name now. Bruce.

Interesting documentary. Is the owner still in business?

Hi Bruce, the ex Rowbotham master would have been either Peter Vine or John Stewart. Probably Peter as I think John was a pilot at Boston or Kings Lynn. I sailed with them both. Two great chaps.

Hi Winmar, Peter Vine rings a bell, he was a fairly young man with fair hair, only a short pilotage but, could be tricky at times. Bruce.

It was indeed a tricky little river and needed 100% concentration at all times! Peter was a good seaman and very professional. He actually lived in Wisbech while he was still at Rowbothams.

Coast lines

I have just watched the recording of the Coaster, Carrick again, very enjoyable. On my dadís medical certificate as he signed on in Jan 1930 to Lancastria it says previous employer Coast Lines. Would he have had number on those ships and would it be the same as that shown on his Discharge book. First entry on that is Jan 1930 so Coast Lines would be late 1929.

Does anyone recall the television programme on the "ADELPHIA" with Eric Goodall at the helm? Equally interesting insight into the coasting trade as "Passage to Wisbech" prove to be. Remember the coaster going into the heart of The Netherlands - but cannot find the programme on YouTube at the moment.
