Yes Phil, definitely a Sugar Line ship and I look forward to finding out which one. Refiner?, Producer? Transporter? They looked great passing Woolwich ferry in ballast downstream, but that was before I had a camera so they are just memories to behold now.
At the time of the picture she was 13,540 g.t, built 1968 and owned by Avanti Maritime Corp., Monrovia (so no great clues there!)
I well remember that T.S.S. trip to view the laid up shipping in the River Blackwater. A whole coachload of people driven by the venerable 'Baz' of Golden Boy Coaches, Blackheath, scrambled upon hastily chartered local fishing boats with a freeboard of almost a whole imperial foot to brave wind over tide conditions out on the estuary 8-) . It's a wonder we all made it back, but there were some wonderful ships out there at the time and it was one of those never to be repeated experiences.
Happy days
John J.
