Ahoy Jim,
I do have quite some "Tramp's ", so not too sure which one, but found this Shetland Trader 1972, is this the one you're looking for?
Hi Rudd,
Thanks for the Pic but it was the Shetland Trader before this one probably
around 1975.Im Sure the ships bell read Tramp.
all the best,
Jim

Surely ther must be some vessels on the coastal trade round the U.K. as those small ships played a big part in keeping small ports viable.
I was especially thinking of LLandulas in north Wales where thousands of tonnes of limestone were shipped to Norway, Sweden and Belguim plus other parts of the u.K.
Does it still operate?
Robertsons ships carried all sorts of cargo in the early 60's so I assume someone else does it now.

Llandulas, not much doing there. I sailed with Robertson's(mid seventies),on the Emerald. we were in Llandulas four times, loading up limestone for Norway and Sweden. the run after that was to Poland for coal, then onto Ireland. great run at that time(once you got over Llandulas).
