    The Chief Officer on the Beaverfir in 69 was a guy called Ralph Potts from Belfast. Shure he was ex. Head line as he would always go ship visiting if there was a Head line ship nearby.
    He eventually ended up running his own shipping agency in Belfast.
    When containers started there was one Head line ship that I recall that was converted to carry containers and C.P. had a joint service with Head line with containers on the N. Atlantic run with, if I am correct, Head line handling the Liverpool and Belfast containers to Quebec.
    Just watched the video in #58 and it brought back great memories for me as cadet on the Beaverfir going up the St. Lawrence to the Great Lakes.
    Just looking at the 2nd ship they passed, the Uranus?, its funnel looked suspiciously like a C.P. funnel at the time, tried to see its name but no joy. If it was a C.P. ship then it would have been the Beaverpine and if "Bootsie" was in charge then he would have been spitting blood as he had got a number of silver canes for being the Master of the first ship in to Montreal after the winter freeze up and would have been going for his gold cane.
