More ORSV queries!

As the tentacles of various Forumites did so well in identifying the ACTIVE DUKE from a previous query (see: viewtopic.php?f=43&t=12831), here are a couple more Albert Weller mysteries, this time from Great Yarmouth, probably circa September 1976:

And, just on the off-chance, there is an unknown trawler as well!

I posted the first two on TugTalk and Darren Gennings came back very quickly with the top photo.

"Thats an easy one, she is one of my old girls, the Bon Accord, ex Decca Recorder.

Dutch built, 1969 with Brons 6GV main engine and 3 x Detroit 6-71 Gen sets and one 3-71 110v Emergency Gen set and a DAF bowthruster engine when i had her"

Darren also supplied some extra photos which I will have a look at this evening when I get back in.

The second photo has been part identified by Ronald Stewart on TugTalk

"One from the six ship fleet of Sandoy Supply. I'm inclined towards Rig Pilot"

Photo of BON ACCORD courtesy of Darren Gennings. Unfortunately, not got one taken from the same angle.
