Hi

I'm trying to obtain more details concerning the Allison Star (ex Athelqueen).

Could tell me who she was owned by as the A.S. and what flag, I believe that prior to becoming the A.S. she was the Ocean Trader in 1971, do you have any details for this?

Thanks in advance

The Allison Star was a firm favorite of mine. She was a regular visitor to the Thames in the late 1970s. If I remember correctly, she was managed by Denholm for Consul Overseas Investments, which was just a single-purpose registered company. The actual ownership was unclear. She must have been on charter to the UK branch of one of the oil majors (Shell?), or a UK oil trader, as I seem to recall her doing coastwise and near continental trips to and from the Thames.

Cheers

I recall that Alison Star was managed by Denholm but not for all that long. When I am not sure but one of the Denholm lads will know

Carried Jet petrol-to Cliffe Jetty- when I piloted her in 1970's. Crew were Italian. She was not a favourite of mine!

Ship-nuts do tend to have their 'favourites', just because they like the look of them. I am sure a few days on-board their favourites might change their minds in many cases!
