Hello Curranart and your very welcome to SN, for your coasters just go to the Gallery, scroll down to the coaster section, click on it and you'll find nearly all the coasters under the sun, plenty of pages to look at, these include the Fisherboats, but if you've any specific ones in mind, hit the search line and enter the ships name and see all the photos of that vessel on the page, for your Harpula, here's a Dutch site with photos and crewmen, perhaps you'll know some there, I've had a look and some Irishmen on her;


if this doesn't get you straight there do a search for the H ones,

good luck Kenny.

Welcomw Curranart.

As an ex-essoman I was intrigued by your reference to Esso Diplomat as it didn't ring any bells. Searched through all Auke Visser's index of Esso tankers and then dug out the book containing a history of the esso fleet and was unable to find any reference to a vessel with this name. Perhaps it was a very small vessel dedicated to Irish in-harbour service? If you have any luck find either a reference or better still a photograph, I would be interested. If it exists I am sure an SN participant will let you know.
