Allen Tony29/01/2014Pool Fisher MV was a British Motor Coaster vessel of 1,028 tons built in 1959. On the 6th November 1979 she was caught in a gale in the English Channel and proved difficult to steer. She was taking heavy seas and appeared to be down at the bow. The weather became worse and she foundered going down by the head and overturning (capsized).
