Dutch Motor Coaster 'Regina'

Does anyone remember a Dutch motor coaster called Regina that I recall visiting the Tweed Dock when I was a kid? From memory she had a single mast. I believe she sank in the Irish Sea in the early 70's but all the crew were taken off safely.

Does this one ring any bells and if so, does anyone have a photo?
Cheers
Billy

Te water als REGINA*.
In 1954 capsized and sunk while cargo moved aside.Crew was saved by a pilot boat.Salvaged and repaired.

On 12-11-1971 underway with a cargo of building bricks from Port Rush to Loch Carnan in very bad weather the ship developed a severe list and was abandoned by crew and sunk on 55°54'NB & 07°05'WL

Many thanks for that Ruud. This is one that I can remember from way back and it was great to see a picture of her again.
