    Well done Chris , spot on.I when I was a kid my Grandpa had a bungalow just up the road from field that the stone is in. Just past the stone on the rocks there was an old redunant swimming pool which had one wall with a hole in it so the tide flowed in and out so the water was changing all the time. As kids my brother and cousins used to swim in it. When I think about it now it was bloody cold. My mum & dad would keep an eye on us and call us out when we started to turn blue, hahaha. Mum and dad& aunties & uncles would always have a picnic for us when we came out. Happy days. When I saw that photo on another website I got quite emotional they are all gone now, just my brother and me left now.

    I would say she is a Bank Line vessel (Andrew Weir Shipping)

    Ivan, sorry wrong.
    Another clue then
    She was built in Fairfield's Yard in Glasgow and it was claimed that she was the first vessel to have her fabrication programmed by a computer.

    She was actually built for the Burma service to go up the rivers but I think only did obne run to Burma before being chartered out.
