Suply vessel built in 05-1966 at Brooke Marine Ltd.Lowestoft[332]
IMO:6607460
Call/Flag Sign:GOYQ
Haven't a clue where these piccies come from.

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

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
