Thanks Alan - I suppose with the berth and the paint job that was a bit obvious!
Any idea of a name and previous?

Alan,

Do you know who owns the Horton now?

I photographed her a couple of years ago on the inner berth, which was lucky as I don't have an pictures of her whilst she was at Blyth.

I still retain an interest in her and it would be nice to know her current whereabouts.

Thanks,
Paul Hood.

I think that Palmers have her now Paul, along with the Chiefton, ex. Seamaid.

Thanks Darren.

Yes Paul, AW = Andy Wood.

Confirm she is with Palmers and working in central London.
I passed her in a taxi on Victoria Embankment this afternoon.
