Nice work Phil and Juergen. I agree that this is most probably IMO 7364546.

Having studied many precise details on both ships, there are numerous similarities and identical features.
Bearing in mind that the ship has undergone major external modifications at least twice in it's life viz: the central cargo handling gear.
From central mast & 4 derricks to
a)'T' shaped sampson post & 2 derricks and
b) removal of the sampson post and latterly, mounting of an electic crane.

At some time a small storage platform has been added in front of the accomodation.

Some of the identical properties (not all, or this will just become a long list):
1) The unusual bridge windows and accomodation port holes and window count all match.
2) The stanchion count on the fo'c's'le, the midships deck housing and even the poop, all match exactly.
3) Re: The 'missing' accomodation ladder on the starboard side in later photos, it can quite clearly be seen that there is 'new' and less damaged steel in this IMAGE at full size.
(However, the *port* side accommodation ladder remains in later photos.)
4) ditto the same as above re: the after end of the fo'c's'le where it appears there is 'new' steel in this IMAGE .
5) Re: the old main mast and the later addition of the 'A' mast on top of the bridge. Looking at newer images, the old mast remains in place and exactly matches Garry's photo, above, other than the radar has been moved to the 'A' mast. The ship's siren remains in situ, as does the yardarm and other mounting platforms thereon.

I will leave it to your discretion whether you agree with my assertion. Garry's ship could have identical sisters, of course, but I doubt it in this case.

The only similarites I see are the bridge windows, the aft of the forcastle is different, the gangway is missing, the mast with midship part is different.
The ship was rebuilt in 1992
[1992 dimensions 64.9/62.1m, 745gt] - 96 KISAN - 98 BUNYAMIN K. - 05 EMIR BEY - 06 TALLAS - 10 BOLADI - 12 REINA - 14 TALLAS

but that much?

When you play with the photo in Photoshop the name appears to read TAHSIN IMAMOGLU but although there is a ship built with that name in 1974, it's appearance is somewhat different in more recent photos:
However, there are similarites, especially the bridge windows.

End of the name is OGLU or ANOGLU

I have not found a ship which could match in Miramar and also no photo found for comparisation.
