Hello Northstar, thank you for the extra information...she is recorded as having been a general cargo ship, so I guess it is a mistake.
Many thanks, Rick

You are Right
The "Geo Prospector" was build 1970 as "Prospekta"
but she was never a cargo vessel, she is every time a seismic research vessel.
From her date of building she was working for Prakla Seismos in Hannover and was managed by Sloman Neptun Bremen
