Anyone know what happened to the Lady McGowan & Lady Roslin out of Irvine around about the 60s/70s. usually with explosives. ( hopefully not the obvious ) for trans shipping to deep sea vessels at anchor around the coast.

I spotted the lady McGowan alongside in Valletta harbour in 1982.She seemed to be laid-up at that time. Sorry I cannot remember the name she then had.

I was cabin boy in the lady McGowan during 75/76. I have fond memories of the ships cook, Harry Valentine. He was a great old guy. Once when we'd sailed across the North sea, I had drunk a full bottle of whisky; the night before. The following morning, while I was looking for Ralf, Harry made me serve the full cooked breakfast to all the crew. Needless to say, I never drunk that much again.
