Hello Doug never sailed on the Capulet but I,ve heard the name.Sailed on the Leopard , another old ship .
Mostly the West Indies, Trinidad, Cuba.LOTS of engine troubles . 56/58
Also the Trinculo/ore carrier. Canada 4 times and never made it ashore once!

Hello Doug I just now read the other post re the Capulet. I am fairly sure Bowring had a ship of that name when I worked for them.
Am I mistaken?
