Hi and welcome to Ships Nostalgia.Liked Ropner ships;one of the few companies that suited green.STONEPOOL was my favourite for looks although as I/m always quick to acknowledge,sometimes reality is different.
Enjoy looking around and you never know who is out there........

Hello Mike

I sailed with Ropners from 1978 to 1984. I remember seeing some of your photos of Ropner ships on another site. Of the older ships, I sailed on the Thirlby twice and the Stonepool.

Hope to see some of your photos posted on this great site.
