    Hello Mike.
    I served in Coe Metcalf Shipping from May 77 as 2nd mate to Dec 2007, retiring as senior master. The only book I remember during that time was Around the Coast and Across the Seas. It came out on the 150th anniversary of James Fisher and Sons. In the early 90s the board of Coe Metcalf approached James fisher to acquire them from the Booker group. It was around this time that pert of the BP coastal fleet was sold to Metcalfs. The next acquisition was the ex Rowbotham fleet bought from P&O Tankships Ltd. in the last three years of the 1990s there was a large building program of 10 clean product tankers and in the few years before I retired they took over the Everard fleet.
    If youd like to borrow the book please let me know.
