I am looking for photographs of the MV Saltersgate built 1976 by Appledore shipbuilders and owned by Turnbull Scott. I sailed on her for nearly a year and although highly unreliable and would roll on wet grass, I had a great time on her, so good in fact that I never had a photo. If anyone has one I would be most grateful.

Haven't you already asked this question on an earlier thread http://www.shipsnostalgia.com/showthread.php?t=4492
I can see you got no picture though.

Yes I did, But I'm still hoping.

Bit of a poser this one, there was an older Saltergate, which was built with flight decks, but it might be worth emailing appledore them selves

I have a photo of SALTERSGATE but I show her as a 1969 build, is that the one?

Sailed on the Skeldegate, 1,599grt. She would roll in dry dock. Had some terrible bouts of seasickness on her through the Bay of Biscay and up in the Black Sea in winter.

Green Park was renamed Saltersgate in 1977, I have emailed appledore shipbuilders and await there reply. Thankyou for all your suggestions, much appreciated.
