One correction, she was actually called "Sirdhana Fortune" when owned by Crossworld Navigation Services, Singapore. Her voyages were mostly between Singapore and Colombo, with a spell between Singapore and Cambodia (1980/81). Her owners were not the best pay masters, but even those salaries were often delayed. She was finally arrested in Kuwait (1981), the crew abandoned by her owners. Meantime, another smaller Crossworld ship "Sinha Fortune" was arrested in Colombo, where she remained till her end.
