New member here...

I sailed on the MV Mano (Elder Dempster) 1965 to West Africa: I believe she's gone now. My one and only trip at sea.

Cheers for now,

According to Miramar data the 1957 ship did not become Mano until 1972. as Blackbear was on her in 1965 it could be the 1948 one.

Hi Shipmate, sorry your right. My PC keeps hanging on miramar, and it's doing my head in.
I'll try a system restore see if that helps.

Hi Ian,
It is nothing to do with your computer, mine is doing it with Miramer as well,really frustrating waiting to change to the next page.

Miramar can be frustratingly slow.
It doesn't allow the use of the back button so I find the answer is to open the next page in a new tab. That means if it doesn't load you can try again without losing your original search.
