Renamed Limon and scrapped in January 2005 in Alang, India. She was the first ship I have memories of as a boy, when she got stuck on a breakwater in Ostend in 1982. I finally managed to sail on her in August 2004, just months before she ended her career. Glad I took that chance. She was a magnificent vessel. © Dieter Pots.
