Smile Looking for the Portolet registered in guernsey

Hi there
I've tried to find this vessel on this site but no luck wonder if anybody aboard of here knows of her or was in her.

Also looking for the Kytondyke (think that how its spelt) she was registered outta Hull I believe

All the best for Hogmaney

Hello hughesy, I think you have a typo, and assume your after the "Portelet", of Onesimus Dorey & Sons, Guernsey.

There were 2 or 3 Portelets over the years, was yours a steamer of the 20's or 30's, or the last one of late 70's ?

I've posted a photo of the Belgrave, a sistership of the last one if that helps you.

regards Kenny.

Happy New Year Hughesy !
I wonder if the other ship you are researching was the KIRTONDYKE, 959/1957
owned by the Klondyke Sg. Co. of Hull in 1964 and thereafter.
They also owned the:-
FRAMPTONDYKE, SOMERSBYDYKE, FENDYKE, WESTNDYKE around that time and also a couple of others built in 1974. Maybe one of these was the KYTONDYKE.
I actually recorded a BOSTONDYKE in Portsmouth in about 1961 but I am not certain she was owned by Klondyke, but I think it is quite probable.

They did have a Bostondyke, old 4 hatch job bridge midships. Passed her once when comming from Helsinki,she was inbound. Remember mate telling go tell 2nd Eng heres the other half of the fleet comming. Early 60s sometime. They were ok at that time for on deck anyway,plenty o/time. Food was good so not much to complain about,plenty time in ports like Hull/Boston. Regards J.Egan
