Thanks Guys.

The only reason I can say 1987 is it is on the Kodak slide mount.

Mysterious ship, Chris! Lloyd's Register book shows that in 1987 there were six Albina built 181ft sisterships in service but CARMELA II is not mentioned. In Lloyd's Casualty Returns covering period 1987 to 1990 there is no trace of vessel named CARMELA II! Brgds

I'd say this is an ultimate coaster shot!

Hi Chris,
Albina Engine & Machine Works, Portland, Oregon had during the war on order 20 Army Freight and Supply vessels.
This order was cancelled at the end of the hostilities and was taken over by the Netherlands East Indies Government and later bought by KPM.
The mv "Sitsen" was the first vessel of the series and the remaining vessels were named after that first ship "Sitsen coasters"
The Carmela II is one of them, but I have not been able to trace which one.
Best regards, Jan
