Brian,

Miramar records: BU Hartlepool 5.79 [Rodridge Engineering Ltd]

Yes, scrapping was completed at Hartlepool, although as Mick's photos show it took several months after May 1979 to complete the work.

Thanks - I imagine they must have found somewhere to beach her to complete scrapping.

Brian,

Have alook at: viewtopic.php?f=141&t=1432&hilit=ayton+cross
and viewtopic.php?f=133&t=8667&hilit=vianova

These were broken up just to the right of where Mick took his photos of the TULIPBANK. For the AYTON CROSS you will see her pulled up a small slipway. Don't know if the same company broke up all three, but I suspect (although I don't know for certain) the TULIPBANK would finally also be pulled onto the same slipway.

Thanks for posting the pictures of the old Tulipbank.

I sailed on her as a 17 year old for a few months in 1969/70. My next door neighbour was captain and gave me job on her before I took up a cadetship with Denholms.
Fond memories of those months, where the ship did various jobs throughout many Glasgow docks: (cleaning out deepwell tanks on Ben Line , Clan Line etc etc ships.) .
Trip to Belfast to tie up alongside the barbed-wire surrounded prison ship Maidstone for a job there as well, and a very nasty see-passage to Liverpool come sharply to mind. (note the freeboard).

So, thanks again.

Will be looking out now for few pics of others I sailed on. Dunadd, Arctic Troll, Naess Champion, Spey Bridge, Conon Forest.
