hello to all just joined been a sailor for awhile now and was hoping to find some info or pictures for my father as he is a retired sailor and wanted to find out about some of the old ships he use to work on. Two of the ones he is looking for are the MV Canadian Highlander and the MV Phosphore Conveyor

I have just joined this forum and read your post. I sailed on the Phosphor Conveyor from September 1977 to January 1988. Right after that I believe she was sold. I was First Assistant Engineer and the Chief Engineer was Gordon Park.
Cheers - Rob

I sailed as ChOff on the Phosphore Conveyor when Huntings took over the management in 1978. John Abuelo as Master, Alan Stoker as Chief and Dennis Elstob as 2nd
