Just to follow this up (and also marvel at how sometimes spooky coincidences happen around here!) this morning as I posted this I got a message on Twitter from Pat McGivern who spotted the photo below of the very same vessel on twitter - I contacted the original poster of the photo and he has given permission to post it here along with the information on the back. Thanks go to Pat and to Deaglan Gallagher who was given the photo by Dennis Gallagher
