The vessel on delivery was time chartered to Canadian charterers 'Saguenay Lines' for 5 years (hull and funnel painted to Saguenay colours ire green) and renamed SUNARAWAK until expiration of t/c, where vessel was redelivered to Anangel Maritime and renamed back to her original name ANANGEL APOLLO. Saguenay Lines, based in Montreal was a major general and dry bulk cargo industrial player. Most of the ships - either owned or chartered were prefixed with word 'sun'.

You are right about the Pielstick, main engine was not the best choise but even so, charted on that time ARMADA lines, we were circumnavigating the world and never stop, fm Tasmania-Burnie to Canada and Bremerhaven, Antwerp to Durban and Japan... Australia on the East, Pacific Islands, and a lot more, Good memories!

Thank you, probably the Pielstick would not allow higher speeds.
