Hi,

If the moderators won't allow it I'll post it anyway; but won't be home for about two weeks. I was Mate '83 to '86 (ie the end!!)

I found this thread when surfing the site but I'm not sure if it's still active.

I stood by the Seagair as Mate whilst she was being built in Lowestoft and then for a further two years in the Magnus Field. I'm sure I've got some photos but I'll need to dig around to find them. If you're still looking for one I'll scan it and put it on the site.

Mike.

Hi Mike, I was your back to back as mate on the Seagair (82-84) and have just retired from BP (you can find me on facebook). Left in 1986 but was asked back in '88 having been on the Sulair and Iolair. I have a painting of the Seagair which was rescued from a skip in Harlow I'll photograph it and post if if I can work out how to do it.

kind regards

I've uploaded the attached oil painting of the Seagair that I rescued from a skip in Harlow, the house flag is slightly damaged. The artist is unattributed, could that be P Picasso on the back? In which case I'll take offers in the region of Picasso's Nude, Green Leaves and Bust painting which recently went for a cool $106M.....(==D)

Hello Mike,

It's Don Love.

Don't know if you still visit this site, but I was 3/E on the Seagair from February 82 until August 84.

Lived in Edinburgh and visited with Doug Coulton who was your relief while I was aboard.

John Gorrie and R Lanz were the Masters; and Dave / Farmer was one of the 2/E.

Left BP in 86 and Worked for Stena until 89 when I left to live in Canada.

I am on Facebook.

Hi John,

Nice to see you on SN, did not know you were a member. If you are interested I have all crew lists for Seagair 1982/85. (13th April 1982 onwards) can send you some if you wish.

Are you 'enjoying' your new Premier?

I have just reread this and realised there was a typo and it should have read February 83.

Hello, I have just found the site and interested in the Seagair items.
If anyone is interested I was an apprentice electrician with L.E.C. Marine when this was being built and watched the launch, of which I have some pictures.
I remember working on the bridge and the massive banks of cables coming up from the lower decks - great times.
Please let me know and I will see if I can work out how to put some pictures up.

Hello

Found three more images of the Seagair.
Unfortunately there are not mine therefor I can only give you the links:

The first image is interesting as it was not long after she was launched and being fitted out at Richards Shipbuilders, Lowestoft.

Hello Paul,

Welcome to SN.

Unfortunately this particular thread is never very active and I am one of the culprits.

I must start checking SN at least once a week lol.

As I am sure you are aware from previous postings, Seagair was converted to a Diving Support Vessel in 1988 and renamed the Toisa Sentinel. Believe it or not at 32 years young she is still trading, just got a hit on the Sentinel heading for Dubai.

You are your colleagues obviously built a fine vessel back in the early 80's (Thumb)

If you have your images on your computer it's relatively simple to upload them here.

Gallery Tab then there is an Upload button toward the top right.

Look forward to seeing them.

John (Don)

I would appreciate any pictures you have of the Seagair
