Thanks Roy. So it looks as if she continued in active Maersk service well into 1995, even if the agreement to sell to USA was made the previous year - or can you confirm that that 1994 date is wrong?

Thanks guys.
I was sorting out some old photos, one, LEISE MAERSK led me to these photos. I saw her on 21st September 1996 so must be IMO 8300119 and she looks identical to this photo.
I have done a quick scan and posted
I'm no expert so will agree with your better knowledge.

Robert she is 7825409. 8300119 was Regina Maersk until 1995 and only then renamed into Leise Maersk until 1999.
All ships in this class had their accommodation heightened to stow an extra layer of boxes.

David Regina was renamed in december 1995, so she is the original Leisa, to free the name for the big newbuilding Regina Maersk who came into service 1996, And the name Leisa was available as the one on the picture was at that time sold for MSC (Military Sealift Command) service.

I think that both 7825409 and 8300119 started off with straight sides and the wings were added when they were lengthened in 1984 and 1987 respectively

But which is this if it was taken in 4/1995, as 7825409 was apparently sold to US Government in 5/1994, and the former REGINA MAERSK not renamed until 12/1995? Perhaps there is something wrong with these dates?

Believe this one is IMO 8300119, different bridge wings.

1987 lengthened by Hyundai
1995 sold to US Navy, converted to Shughart Class Large Medium Speed Roll on/Roll Off ship by National Steel and Shipbuilding, San Diego, CA
1997 USNS YANO T-AKR-297 entered service with Military Sealift Command

The ship was renamed after Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. Rodney J.T. Yano, but it's name is simply Yano.
