hello. I also served on the Margaree for a couple of years. I am building a 6 foot model with aluminum skin of this ship. I just launched it this past weekend and set ballest. I would love to get as many pictures of the ship as I could to help me make it as true to what the old girl was as I can get. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have pictures of my work so far if anyone is interested.

I served on the Margaree in 1971 - Radar Plotter, crossed the artic circle that summer - I have lots of pictures but they are all slides - I recall the Chief Cook was a bitter individual (female problems) and the crew blamed the poor food on him - The messing was the worst I had ever experienced both in the army and the navy - She was fast, very fast - I would be interested in seeing your pic's.
