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.

Sailed on the Skeldegate, 1,599grt. She would roll in dry dock. Had some terrible bouts of seasickness on her through the Bay of Biscay and up in the Black Sea in winter.

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.
