Hi Don,

Don't know about the 1972 version...but there's still an Acer alive and well today.! She comes into my local port, Teignmouth now and then. I'll see what I can find out about her for you.

The 'Acer' that was around in 1972 was lost in bad weather in the English Channel around 1973 I believe. I remember talking to the Engineer, John Buckley from Hale ,Merseyside not too long after the event

Go to 'Casualties to vessels and accidents to men' (Adobe Format) you will see 'Acer' capsized July 29th 1973.

On your regular search engine, Type in 'Casualties to vessels and accidents to men 1973' and it will come up but you will have to scroll through the document .

Thanks Awateah2, I'll try that. I thought you meant that that document was on somewhere on this site.
