Believe all the Decca boats were bought by a guy in Great Yarmouth and rechristened Bon Esprite, Bon Accord etc. Last saw a one in Ghana a few years ago being used for Air Diving. Theres photos of her in SN

hi rudd

thnks again for your kind help, can you find me a photo of the starella when she was a survey ship , she also went on a 9 month expedition to find the bismark with a dr bollard, in the 1980s i believe, i think she had a funnel or something on her aft.

The Starella yuou are looking for was a converted stern trawler.

Don,

I have been through Google looking for photo with no luck.
Plenty of references to her and to Starella(I).
Marrs sold her in 1989 but have been unable to find anything after then.
Sorry
