Nice shot Allan.
I photographed her in the James River Reserve Fleet just before she went to scrap in 2005.

Hi Allan,
The NEPTUNE is listed in LR's New Entries 1990-91 as operating for US Military Sealift Command, call sign NGUB, with a 'LR Number' of 8834897. The entry indocates that she was re-engine in 8/1978.

Best regards
