Saltersgate

I am looking for photographs of the MV Saltersgate built 1976 by Appledore shipbuilders and owned by Turnbull Scott. I sailed on her for nearly a year and although highly unreliable and would roll on wet grass, I had a great time on her, so good in fact that I never had a photo. If anyone has one I would be most grateful.

Kenyon,

Haven't you already asked this question on an earlier thread https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/showthread.php?t=4492

I can see you got no picture though.

Bit of a poser this one, there was an older Saltergate, which was built with flight decks, but it might be worth emailing appledore them selves

I was sent to the Saltersgate in about 1964. She was a Sam boat and was going out on the commy coast forever. I did an about turn back to Leith and that was the end of my sea going life.
