||Bulkers built 1950-1960|
(14039 gt/19100 dwt)

Sold 11/1977 for demolition; left Fremantle 23/1/1978 in tow of tug SUMI MARU (498/1974) for Kaohsiung.
Another Vessel I spent some time on. She was the quietest vessel I have ever sailed on, she was so quiet it was like on a sailing ship, no engine noise anywhere, or very little. It was a long time ago but they are few of those trivial things that have lived on with me.
