I worked for Turnbull Scott from September 1961 to December 1983. Sungate was the first ship that I stepped on.

Sad to see her looking like that.It was my first ship in 1960 and 1961 as an apprentice. She always looked smart in her green. hull and white superstructure, and I thourghly enjoyed my 2 years sailing in her.
