Joya McCance

Post by Voyager » Thu Apr 05, 2012 7:31 am

Fifty years ago today, I joined my 2nd ship in South Shields. The Houlder Brothers iron ore carrier Joya McCance.
Amazing how time flies and how I remember most of that day. Had a marvellous time aboard during three voyages:
Shields - Conakry (West Africa) - Shields
Shields - Conakry - Glasgow
Glasgow - Seven Islands (Canda) - Barry for layup.

Thanks for the link George. Brought back happy memories. When she was hulked on the Orinoco, I felt that she may last for many more decades in that capacity, but I see she was eventually scrapped.

ST MARGARET-built by William Gray at West Hartlepool in 1960 as JOYA MCCANCE for Houlder Brothers and was renamed on their takeover of the South American Saint Line with their SAINT names.
This was taken in 1974 outbound after discharging iron ore at General Terminus.
She later became HADIOTIS and was then converted to a barge MARITIMA VI being broken up about 1990.
