A rather late reply, but my late father was involved with the conversion and trials of FASGADAIR in the early 80s as was. He did a number of trials with this ship with his own ship (HOUNDBANK) prior to her taking up service.
Sam, if you wish I've quite a few photos I could scan and post.

Hello Jim, I was on the Fasgidar back at the start as a 9 year old boy, My father took me to Aberdeen to look round it. His name was George Ross. When she was sold and became the Fourth Explorer I did my EDH and AB's tickets on her and was onboard for 8 years untill she was sold in 98.

Gents,
I've got to hold my hands up and say I totally forgot to get around to scanning those photos. I'll get to it in the next few days and let you know when it's done via this thread.
As a little taster, here's a snap of her with LADY OF MANN just after the conversion was completed and all her toys were shown off to the BP bigwigs.
Taken adjacent to the Govan drydocks (I think) in 1981.

Hello Sam, No I have just been on the web, I did not upload the picture you are seeing. I do have pictures of course it would take a bit of finding in the loft these days! Who do you remember on the crew when you were on?
