This ship was originally time chartered and operated by me on the Japan NZ car route in 1989 and was renamed from TARGET. Designed by Jan Erik Dvyi she was first registered as DYVI SKAERRAK although often confused with the later DYVI ADRIATIC. She had a twin but the name escapes me. The twin was renamed TRIGGER .In 1989 renamed after my daughter Patricia.

This one looks like an old friend of mine. Could it possibly be either,or the former Høegh Target/Trigger? I worked aboard these vessels in the early eighties.The were both sold in 1983. Anybody out there who knows the full story?

Surprised to see this old friend here.She ran for many years as the Armacup Patricia on 2nd hand car run from Japan to New Zealand.
Not sure of her previous history though.

But a plea to you. Please include the names and if possible dates on the photos.

Keep them coming they are great shots.
