Hi all
I'm looking for some photo's of a few coasters. St. Blane (Gardiners), Leadsman (Rowbothams), Craigmore (Cawoods Coal of Belfast), Durham Teal, Dorset Fulmar, Devon Curlew, Ice Lark & Carrick Kestrel (All Sealion Shipping).
The Carrick Kestrel was also the Silver Kestrel(Silver Line) in a previous life.
I'd appreciate any help with thes pics (prepared to pay) as I am writing my 'memoirs' for my Grand Children.
Regards
McG (Pint)

McG,
Welcome to SN, I am sure a member will be able to assist you.

If only more of us old salts had the foresight to write our memoirs, future generations will be grateful when we are no longer around. I wish you luck with your research.

Have posted a picture of the Silver Kestrel for you. A friend of mine was mate on her in the early 1970's, John Marshall.

Wow

Wow, I like this site...What service ! Thanks Jeff For the 'Kestrel'.
I was on the Silver Kestrel in 1971, the skipper was Willy (Scobie) Black. cant remember your friend tho'. Scobie Black continued as skipper when it became the Carrick Kestrel for Sealion Shipping into the 80's. Rumour was that he was the real owner !!??
Thanks again
McG :D

Thanks Ragusa, still need St. Blane & Durham Teal to complete.
Hi also Glasson. Didnt know Tim Danity, the skipper for years was William (Scobie) Black from Carrickfergus. He was also skipper when she was the Silver Kestrel so Tim must have came after him.
Regards
McG

Hi John
I remember you on the 'Lark'. I was the relief Cook for Sealion at that time. I was the Belfast man who bought the Superstar 2000 C.B. Radio in Goole.
If you click on my profile, you will see what I look like now. Not a pretty sight !
There is a pic of me & 2 Sealion lads, Pete & Chris, in Amsterdam here

Hope you are good John

Hi McG, and Goldie,
'Silver Kestrel', Rowbothams and Carrickfergus, I am sure you must have crossed paths at some time with an old friend and shipmate of mine, Tommy McIlhinney, from Larne if I remember correctly. Tommy retired must be more than 15 years ago now, I often wonder what became of him.
Cheers. Bruce.
