Description:
- in winter lay-up in the Old Port in Montreal, QC, 2-12-04. This Panamax dimension ship, though just under DWT ship is famed for Green Peace's stink about her. She was renamed 'Michalakis' and scrapped in Alang,India in the Spring of 2005. She worked from Sorel,QC to the tip of the St. Lawrence River on the Atlantic typically.
I must admit she is one of my, if not the, all time favorite bulkers. Love the near panamax dimensions, fitting into the CSL 'Laker Fleet'
