In 1981/82 I sailed on the Causeway as 4th engineer. Does anybody know what happened to it and the Bonnieway. I have tried searching the net without success.
Would also like to hear from anybody who sailed on her about that time.

Lost info

Hi Banni

I too have been searching for info on Bonnieway and Causeway. Since retiring I'm putting together some info on ships I've sailed on and can't find anything on the fate of these to. Assuming both are scrapped I'm just after the year that happened and the IMO numbers.
Have you managed to find anything?

Baz,

ex Clan Grant, MacGregor, MacGillivray etc, King Richard, George etc, Speedster Universal, Kinpurnie, Scirocco etc, Al Moshatree etc and Texaco.

Thanks again.
I never sailed on this one but of course knew about it. Its strange how hard is can be to find ship information. I'm still looking for a vessel that I briefly sailed on and there are lots of references to it all with the same info.
Cheers.

What vessels are you still looking for? Let me know and I will see what I can do through my resources.

Hi BB. My time on Causeway overlapped yours by @ 5 weeks, I joined in Sydney in July 1982 for the voyage back to Hadera, Isreal, then drydock in Greece, US for grain, thro' Panama, to Japan via Long Beach for bunkers, eventually getting off in Vancouver at the end of December. From the depths of memory, some of the people on board at that time were CE Jellytot (Ken Talbot?), 2E Murray Sinclair, 3E Geoff Argent, 4E you, JE Me (Nev Alcock), EE Terry O'Donnel, PCO Charlie Cavanagh, CO Bob Dhoby, 2O Phil Hooper, 3O Richard Precious. Your relief was Barry Gibb(s?), Sad Sam McCleod relieved Jellytot, John Cardownie relieved the RO you sailed with, other names are lost in the mists of time.

The one I'm missing is the St Patrick, a stand-by vessel I did a bout 4 weeks on waiting to join Texaco. I was originally a stern trawler from Lowestoft, LT 129 I believe. Built 1975 with IMO 73366180.
It was converted sometime before 1990 to a rescue vessel and re-engine so I after the new BHP, NRT and Official Number if at all possible.
There are lots of references to it as fishing vessel and later under its new name of Viking Vixen. Probably scrapped in 2006.

Anything will help and is appreciated.

Thanks.

Referring to the details I posted on CAUSEWAY I inadvertently gave her keel laying year as 1976 instead of 1967. Dyslexia rules KO!

This link will give you most of the details for ST PATRICK

Keel laid xx/03/1975
Launched 12/08/1975
Completed 15/10/1975
Engine type was a 6-cyl 4SCSA (318 x 368mm) Ruston 6ATCM type to controllable pitch prop. 1,651bhp

Good Afternoon
Awesome, after all that time, John cardownie was on a previous trip I did on the Causeway. Bob Dobbie was an absolute gentleman. Do you have any pictures of the Causeway or indeed anybody reading this do you have any photo's. I bought one taken from Sydney Harbour Bridge but over the years it has faded and I am trying to replace it. Wharferat are you retired now?
Regards

Hi, I sailed on the Bonnieway as a Junior Engineer, trip after the maiden voyage. Joined her in the US, loaded grain and sailed to Constanta Romania. Port was on strike, anchored for 3 months! So bored, we pulled a unit for the fun of it. The Lecky (Arnie Roberts) made crazy paintings in his workshop, 2nd Engineer made a navigating ruler for his sail boat. So boring and missed the smell of the Can line curry's but didn't we all!
