Help Requested

Would anyone happen to know or alternatively could advise if there is a site where I could obtain the Official No of the old Medomsley vessel the MV Hurley Beacon built in 1963 at the Werf de Noord Yard in Alblasserdam.

Thanks V M

Another site to try when looking for ships is http://gsn.ncl.ac.uk/
Hurley Beacon is not in that database, but it is always worth a try.
