Do any of you remember the biggest ship built on the Wear the Naess Crusader. I remember going on board as a kid during the workers family day but I can't find any reference or pictures of it anywhere on the net.
My father also agrees about the name.
Can anyone save my sanity and confirm this???

Some background info in the following thread on her and her sister Nordic Chieftan: (Thumb)
Fairfield also has a couple of photographs of her (as Naess Crusader) in our Gallery. (Thumb)
