Frederick M

Has anyone any information about this tanker from the Metcalf fleet.
Where was she built, and the years she was in the fleet.
Is she still operational.

Thanks for all that info, she was not the usual type of vessel run by Metcalf, or later Coe-Metcalf.

She certainly wasn't anything like that Peter M I sailed in back in 1963. That ship was one of my worst experiences in the MN.

Always thought that Metcalf's should have used A Stetson as a funnel marking! Lol!

What the Peter M did have on the funnel was an inverted chip pan basket perched on top. They called it a spark guard. It came off in heavy weather off Douglas one afternoon and bounced off the lifeboat and hit one of the ABs on his shoulder, breaking it. We had to land him in Douglas. I wished that the damned thing had hit me instead so I could get off that piece of sh1t!

I think Metcalfs took over two BP tankers and one was renamed Frederick M and the other David M. That would have been in the late eighties or early nineties.

Best to do 11 trips.One out and one back.
A mini tanker port was built at Faslane, just next to Metal Industries (now the Submarine base), in the early 1960's and I can remember the Peter M calling on several occasions. We never knew what the purpose of this berth was, it was used so seldome.
