|Berge Odel in the Mediterranean off the coast of Algeria in the early Spring of 1966 photographed from the London Tradition.
Confession time: The slide was starting to deteriorate and it was necessary to remove a lots of spots from it. The Berge had suffered an oil spill or two and looked pretty rough in parts, so I cleaned her hull up too.

She was being a very huge size built crude oil tanker in those very years ( 1963; DWT 56,000 tons ). |
I posted a copy of this photo on a web site as an unidentified tanker some years ago because I could not read the second part of the name. I was promptly told by several people that the word was Doel and I assumed they knew what they were talking about. I was surprised that I could find no reference to her anywhere. I'll update the details. Thanks again.

I am sure Berge Odel is meant as the name... |
