Eileen M she was a good vsl to sail /work on good run Fords Dagenham to Fords Cork especially in bad weather great stability she was not a roller but was a pitcher & a time springs to mind is a few days before Christmas back in the mid 70s? on a trip from London River to Fords Cork with a full deck cargo of vehicle parts in wooden crates, drums of paint in the well-deck FWD of No:1 hatch all was double lashed down, we pitch all the way down channel in a Wly 7-8 rounded Land’s End, bugger me if the wind didn’t veered to NWly 8-9 with heavy seas lashed over the bow & pitching deep to confused seas during the night we put on the deck lights just to see if the deck cargo was still there Ha, @ dawn Christmas Eve morning on the approaches to Cork, the black & green of Metcalf’s colours had suddenly changed to orange car paint all over the vsl, for’ deck windlass / decks /coaming lower part of the structure & the dockes wouldn’t come on the vsl to discharge until all the paint was removed, good for us, but not for Metcalf’s hate higher specialist (tank cleaners), So it turned out good for us as we got Christmas in & sailed day after Boxing day, The vsl just look like the 2 ships, Cargo Liner 1 & Cargo Liner 2 like the 2 vsl which use to run to Goole years back…
