CANOPIC

Postby Dennis Maccoy » Tue Aug 11, 2020 4:11 pm

Shaw, Savill & Albion’s Canopic, completed at Walker Naval Yard in 1954, alongside at Smith’s Docks in July 1964 with what appears to be an Irish Shipping Co. vessel astern. Broken up 1986.

Dennis, I did the river trip on 22 July 1964 and logged CANOPIC, but not the Naess (?) or Irish vessel (but I logged only new sightings so they may have been there).

One of the three built at Cork early 1960s
Last one was poor quality or translated into Irish 'the turd' :D :D :D

Must be IRISH CEDAR 1962 or IRISH PLANE 1963 both from the Verolme Heusden yard. They differed from the earlier SYCAMORE (by Grays) & ROWAN (Cork).

Yes either CEDAR or PLANE as ROWAN dad a different mast configeration
Think I saw one of them, or one similar, laid up in the Royal Docks in London in the early 1980s
