Interested in this nice shot of an old factory trawler. I think it is the Roxana Bank, built Gdynia, Poland 1978 and launched as Lamna, although later '78 delivered to Iraq as Al Ahwar along with two others of the same type/class (B417s). Changed to South African flag / Cape Town, 1987 and renamed Roxana Bank. LR/IMO No 7625782
