No I didn't take her as I only did warships in B&W in the early '80s (mostly warships for a Belgian friend). I have her on slides though. The tug on her stern is SINMAC which a longtime fixture in the Port of Montréal.

Hard to believe she was a supertanker in her day.

Did you take this Marc ?, the neg is 35 mm
