Description:
11,019 g.t. built 1960.

Seen laid up in the River Blackwater, Essex on 16/8/86 where she had arrived on 10th February in tow of the tug Peter Wessels.
Paul (Fairfield) is quite correct in his observation. I have just found scribbled in the back of my old notebook the following ex names:
Coltair-86, Forties Kiwi-82, British Kiwi-76.
It also says she was sold in 1986 by BP Oil Development Ltd. to Waterloo Shipping Co Ltd, Malta.
