There was an extended article, with a lot of pics, in "Ships in Focus Record" within the past couple of years - don't recall which one off hand, but I'll look at home tonight (if I remember) and will post the details later this week.

Cheers

Andy

Definite memory lapse, the article on the Bowater fleet actually appeared in SIFR Nr 5 (Feb 1998), with a follow up in SIFR ( (June 1999)

A bit more than a couple of years !

Cheers

Andy

Whatever happened to this fleet of special ships?
Does the company have their Mills in Newfoundland still.
I worked with Bowater-Scott in Australia in the mid 60's as a Salesman selling Tissue Products.(a JV with the Scott Paper co of Philadelphia)
We had nothing to do with Newsprint.
Would be interested to know.
Regards,
David D.
