Ahoy Alan,
Don't have a photo but found a painting of "a" Manistee, hope this is the one you're looking for.

I find it remarkable how some paintings look like photographs,apart from artists name that picture could be a photo.

Thanks Rudd but I think the Manistee I am looking for is an older one. Many years ago I went to Hull and in the maritime Museum there was a sketch of her Thanks Again Alan

Erin 1932 1934 purchased from Erin SS Co, UK, various charters to Elders & Fyffes, 1939 under control of Ministry of War Transport, UK, 1947 sold to Elders & Fyffes renamed Manistee. 5,739 Call Sign:GRXC and built at Workman,Clark[1928]Ltd.Bel. on 5/1932 L.o.a.x B.x H:431'3"x54'8"x24'11¼" with Engine:T 4Cy.28½" 47"½ & [2]57"x 51" & elec.drive from LP turbine.
Indeed she was a banana boat with 3 lower decks for fruit cargoes and started for the Standard Fruit Company [Vaccaro Brothers]

Peter, I made two trips on the S.S. Corrales in 1952,one was to the West Indies the other was to a dump called Tico, West Africa.
She was an old ship but built like a tank,I think her sister ships were the Bayano, and the Ariquani, I also made a couple of trips on them. Some of the old hands called them "Ocean Going Coal Mines" 24 fires back-to-back. John R

Hello John, Yes we were privileged weren't we? I was in Corrales 1959, 3 trips,one to the jewel of west Africa TIKO and the others to Port Antonio Jamaica, (on deck).not the best of anything- food -money or accomadation. Iwas also In Zent and Tetela- glutton for punishment, Peter

Alan its not a good idea to post your email address on the board.
Edit your post and take it out. Bad people fish the whole internet for email addresses and dump porn on you,and we dont want that do we Alan.?? I was on the tanker Athelmere that had a funnel midships but it was real.

Lived next door to Don Mitchell for years,Don and my dad were friends for many years. Don was a D.E.M.S. gunner during the war. Also sailed with his oldest son Donald and brother Brian on the skinners and the City line. Donald went missing in OZ and they have never found him,I have tried helping their sister Dawn trace him down but have had no luck.

Hi Alan;

Did you get your pix of Manistee [inservice 1950]?

I have a scan of this vessel as Standard Fruit & Steamship Co. SS ERIN back in the 1930ies. She came to E&F post war, 1946.

Cheers,

Rory

PS Did someone say they had an image of ZENT? Sure would like to see that one if possible.
Rory

Hi Ruud;

You are the Man. Never cease to amaze me. I forgot I had a couple myself, but lack so many of the "near similar" B Boats of Fyffes. Do you have any of the others?

Cheers,
Rory
