Does anyone have any information or photos of the Guernsey Fisher? I was on her in the very early eightees on several runs from Portsmouth to Dublin and Le Havre also Garston to Dublin and Belfast. I would be very grateful for any assistance hear.
Many thanks Phil

I was 2/O on Jersey Fisher in the Summer of 1975 when she was chartered to Sealink on the Portsmouth to Channel Islands run. Spent a happy 12 weeks on her. A Guernsey Fisher used to operate with us if I remember correctly. Think she was a sister vessel. Jersey Fisher was built in 1972 in Holland. Is that the Guernsey Fisher you mention? I have placed photos of Jersey Fisher in SN Gallery but unfortunately I have none of Guernsey Fisher.
