Thanks for your comment, Tanker. With your IMO number I looked at Equasis and they say it the other way round, that Janetta became Memel, and that Memel is the current name. This current Memel was built in 1968, and has Grt949 and Dwt785. It would be nice when somebody can confirm that it really is the same ship!

Possible is IMO 6814051,if correct now is the Ukraine JANETTA.
