Great photo of the old Beaverelm,i did my first trip to sea on her in 1962 as Carpenter,i might have been on her when this pic was taken,i will have to consult my discharge book.

I agree but a well-maintained all white hull does appeal to a photographic eye.

nice shot, but can't help thinking she looked better in her original CP colours
