Ben Roy - SN128,  	aavh & Ben Lora - SN43

Ben Roy - SN128,   aavh & Ben Lora - SN43 seen here in the Albert Edward Dock - now Royal Quays Marina, North Shields. Photograph taken sometime between the late 1970s and the early 1980s.

Anyone like to make a guess at the boat in the middle?

    The middle one may be Ben Glas - SN 41 Steve. Just a guess really as she was identical to Ben Lora & these look the same.
    I remember seeing Ben Roy down here on the Mackerel when she was quite new. An impressive boat !
    I really like all your old North Shields photos btw.
    Do you, by any chance have any of Bernd - SN 104 ?
    My dad bought her from North Shields in 1978.
    Thanks for having a stab at naming her - I'm sure I took the photographs when the Ben Boats had been laid up in the Albert Eddie for quite a few years - thus the fading names and paint work  :)

    If I have a photograph of the boat, you will see it here but the name doesn't ring any bells. You may however see it in the background of one of the shots.
