Hello all!

I have tried to find pictures from that ss Narvi ex. Lake Ontario boat, but I could not find anything.
The ship was built in West Hartlepool in 1951.
The ship was owned by Ilmari Tuuli, the years 1967-1974.
I was a stoker in that ship at that time.

It would be great if there was a picture of the ship, because it was the first ship to my place when I went to sea.

Sincerely
Taisto

I see that she was later renamed OLYMPOS, a name which I did manage to find a picture of a vessel from that era named, here (http://www.photoship.co.uk/JAlbum%20Ships/Old%20Ships%20O/slides/Olympos-01.html). This is as close as I was able to come.

Good luck in your search.
