Wondering what happened to the 'Ripon' after 1964. I did one trip in her as 4th eng. and she was feeling her age down below. Back then she was in 'Bolton Steam Shipping Company' livery. An comments or photo posting would kinda make my day.I know, get a life etc. Thanks, Robert

The "Ripon" arrived in Santander on 26 May 1972 to be broken up but was resold to Letasa SA of Spain and used as a hulk to lighten bulk carriers at Santurce, Spain.

MV Ripon

Hi Robert. I sailed on the Ripon in 1957 as an apprentice. You know that she ended her days as a kind of barge in the port of Santurce and I have downloaded a poor pic of her with a huge Munck-loader mounted on board. The file also includes a very quick sketch drawn in the chartroom by an 3rd mate around 1957. I think his name was Philip Mawson - he was a very good artist.

Cheers Tony C
