Dave,

I researched their history for the Stena Group for a couple of books published by them and the World Ship Society and have retained the vessel data on PC and regularly update it. Not only the ferries but also their cargo, tanker and offshore fleets

David my good old buddy

Seeing your rather new to SN and not sure how far your enthusiasm for shipping is but All the information BillH has supplied can be found on an excellent website called Fartyg which I thoroughly recommend so you can find all the information regarding your former ships.

Hello, I have been Captain of this vessel in 1982 and 1983, at this Tim “Manaure 7” and later “Oyster Bay”. We were in charter out of Miami into the Caribbean Sea. Photos to follow.
