DOLPHIN POINT was ex CORCHESTER and in 1987 was sold as CORAHi Nigel, Their were 3 CEGB Ships mothballed in Harlepool. Two were the Dolphin Point & the English Point.I was so strapped for cash I started work on them on New years Day! We refurbished them as they were bought by Italians Crewed by Hungarians. Biggest problem was condensation, We had to dry every motor out. One was built on the Tyne originally called the Hudson Bay Trader, I have a photograph of her on her maiden voyage. I also have the Brass engineroom plaque. They all sailed and I never heard about them again till now. I do remember their new flag- which was ying and yang! Hope this helps
