With regard to the February 2016 issue of Sea Breezes and the letter from Jim McCarlie on Ferguson’s Shipyard.
Both were moored next to each other in Millbay Docks.
After boarding both, I was given the lifebuoy of Discovery II, leaving it in my residential hostel after completing my one year course in July 1963.
I hope this photo is of interest.
