I've fond memories of Grantleyhall. I joined her in Dar Es Salaam in 1972 (I think that was the year) as the R/O and we then sailed to Buenos Aires for a wonderful 4 week stop over whilst we loaded bulk sugar by hand. I have great memories of the crew and the great times we had. The Master was Capt Feather from Scarborough and my then fiance gave his wife a lift to Tate and Lyle in Liverpool were we discharged the sugar. She then went to Gotenburg where I signed off to return home to get wed . . . The vessel I understand then went to Australia with car parts and other items and spent some time on the Australian coast I think. The best vessel I ever sailed on and the best radio room. I remember calling home from BA on 12 Mhz through Portishead Radio and the call quality was amazingly clear even for those days. Wonderful time.
