Communicator leaves Lowestoft August 2004


As part of the Lowestoft Fish Fayre, the former home of Laser 558 - the M.V. Communicator was open to the public once more. This is quite possibly the last opportunity to visit the vessel at Lowestoft as a move is expected from the port later this summer.

My son and I arrived just after midday and were welcomed onboard by none other than Dave Miller (owner) himself and subsequently given a guided tour around the ship as well. Much time given to take photos and following the official tour then told to basically go anywhere we liked.

For a ship which was involved in a battle with the British Government of the day I found it slightly amusing that on this day the public were treated to "light refreshments", maybe the Laser lady is mellowing in her age! But very warmly welcome the refreshments were. AND they were all freshly prepared in the ship's galley. It seems the priority was that the galley was the first place restored to previous glory.

Everyone onboard was extremely friendly and as you walked around you not only fell in love with the boat but the people made you feel welcome too. It was not so much a boat as a home, as it had been to the djs and crew in the mid 80s.
