I used to see this ship regularly in the mid 1990's. I was running between Western Australia and Japan with LNG and she as the Shin Hoh, was doing a simlar run with Iron Ore. She regularly loaded at Dampier WA. I could recognise her at extreme range with the binoculars because of her distinctive deckhouse. It would be nice to see her again in Australia but i doubt it will happen due to her vintage.

Thanks Denis for the hilarious comment (that made me laugh :D) and Mark for the interesting information...

A fine shot of her, well done. On the basis that she was purchased by her present owners on 19 March 1999 for US$ 5.5m., they have done exceptionally well and have enjoyed a boom market (and now find themselves back where it all started but with a good asset)

Quite a dinosaur by todays standards for big ships.
