    My dad, Jan Poppen was First Mate on The Marwit that delivered cargo from Roncorn Liverpool to London Derry Island in England. This was from 1964.
    Did anyone know him, or can you offer more information about the ship?

    @ Janine Poppen :Hi Janine,
    Marwit was built 1960 499gt renamed Sapna about 1981 and broken up 1986.

    [Janine: Marwit was certainly a smart ship. Gleaming paintwork and brasswork - a credit to your Dad.

    The shortsea route was certainly a rough one, so even more impressive to maintain such high standards.
