Could this one be the Star of Hope?

Could be Bob but I think it was possibly an older boat as the first boat on the list was mid 1950's so looking at maybe mid 1960's or so for the Star of Hope but I could be wrong

Think there were 3 Star of Hopes, all for Port Seton and LH reg, 1948 built LH260 at Cockenzie, 1959 built LH274 at Arbroath, and the 3rd one built as LH260 at Eyemouth in 1970. I have pics of all 3, also Border Lassie. However, I can't post them on the site as I didn't take the pics. If you pm me your email address, then I can send them by email. Alternatively i could print them off and drop them off somewhere in Eyemouth.
Don't know of Stewart McIvor, but Olsens lists a Stuart T. McIvor BCK170 in late 50s.
Are you the Margaret Grant who helped me out with pics of Star of Bethlehem LH400 a few years ago? You left them in Eileen's cafe for me...
