Ron Hansen,
"Coastal Empress" and her sister ship "Coastal Emperor" were two of the; P &J Johnstones fleet. Very similar ships to the photo in this
website; "Aberdeen Progress".
They were never amoing the high earnings vessels of the time.
Skippers aboard "Coastal Empress" were, Bill Cowie a Buckie man and later; wee Billy Rhind an Aberdeen guy.
Photos, sorry but I do not have any photos of these vessels but try the website; aberdeenships.com you just might find them their...
