Thanks for that information. rumours here have it that a load of drugs was dumped in the Gulf somewhere... Weird story

I found the two you mentionned of th same class. Pretty much look the same allright.

Hi Lanaud,

to me it looks like a vessel built by Neptunwerft, Rostock of former "Deutsche Seereederei" since 1975. First vessel was RUDOLF DIESEL. They were a series of 19 vessels. The first vessels of the series ended with "-WALDE" like "FÜRSTENWALDE", the others of the series ended with "-SEE" like ARENDSEE".

I had heard she was sold, left Rimouski and headed of to osme Port on The U.S. Coast where she was for sale again... Mind you, that was 2-3 years ago. Thanks for the info. :-D

Hi Lanaud,
Got few informations about this mystery ship. Left Rimouski to get caught in Sydney for 900+ days under Port State Control.
Last available information on official data base is a Class certificate issued 05-01-2006, by Indian Register of Shipping, might be to ship her to Alang for scrapping...
Could be interesting to find out by the shipspotting community over there! Have a nice summer

Thx for this picture. Remember a lots of memories of my time pass here in Rimouski.

I went onboard and it was in really bad condition....

Neat story telling, but we might have missed a deal of a century, probably went for cheap :lol: :lol:
