That takes me back!!!

She came into Blyth as well and I think we knew something about her at the time, but I cannot remember.

I'll have a look.

Sorry Mick, had to give in.

I've been through all my slides for 95/96/97 and cannot find any of her which is very strange.

Nothing in Marine News either.

I have a feeling her original name was still on one of her Lifebouys, but I could be wrong.

I think she was based at Harwich in an earlier life.

Watched a repeat of the UK Border Force series recently and they covered an incident in the Channel involving UK and French customs aircraft and patrol vessels tracking and eventually boarding a vessel laden with drums of drugs. Lots of aerial filming and the vessel, quoted as a diving vessel had a close similarity to this one. Unfortunately I don't recall seeing or hearing a name mentioned.

However that said, if it was her then she would not be very seaworthy after the customs rummage crew had been through her cutting holes to access potential hiding places. Having already seized a phenominal amount of drugs in drums on deck and recovered jettisoned drums from the sea, they would not be too worried what state they left her.
