Hi,

I was 2/O on Jersey Fisher in the Summer of 1975 when she was chartered to Sealink on the Portsmouth to Channel Islands run. Spent a happy 12 weeks on her. A Guernsey Fisher used to operate with us if I remember correctly. Think she was a sister vessel. Jersey Fisher was built in 1972 in Holland. Is that the Guernsey Fisher you mention? I have placed photos of Jersey Fisher in SN Gallery but unfortunately I have none of Guernsey Fisher.
