The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses.

Similar to GLENMOOR but completed in 1961 again by Hawthorn Leslie as LINKMOOR, she was transferred to Anchor Line which Runciman took control of in 1968. This was taken off Bowling on the Clyde in September 1979.
In 1981 she was sold on becoming SIGIRIYA and was broken up at Gadani Beach in February 1983.

I did the last trip on her before she was sold in Sri Lanka. A good old happy ship, she finished her days on the Indian trade. I left her 16/05/1981 in Colomobo.
