ChrisW says Hello and asks about Blazer Boats

28th March 2008, 21:18
I worked for Decca Survey in late 60's early 70's based in Yarmouth but sailing out on survey boats - mostly the "Blazer" boats. My main vessel was the Highland Blazer but also sailed on the Viking Blazer and Trail Blazer. Most were ex Norwegian coastal boats (I think). We did survey and rig moving work supplying postion fixing service using hi-fix. Does anyone have any info on these ships? Chris Whitfield

Welcome from Lancashire.

I hope you will enjoy the site.

BTW I am moving your post to the "Say Hello" forum as it is your first one and more likely to be seen by a wider audience.
