RUDDBANK, the 4th of the 6 ‘FISH’ class ships.

The RUDDBANK only stayed in the fleet for 4 years (a record minimum stay from 1979 to 1983) and became the ROMNEY of Lamport and Holt. This class were popular as a part container ship that ran at 16kts, but they entered the fleet at a time of great turbulance due to the world wide impact of containerisation and the rapidly changing parameters for a stable and profitable service that affected all owners. She eventually came to grief as the GLOBAL MARINER on the Orinoco river.
