Hi Rick,

It looks like the Maersk tanker is Regina Maersk, photo of that coming up too!

Hi Rick,

You are correct mate it was Ioannis Colocotronis, photo coming up when I have photoshopped it!

DEREK SANDS on Jan 09, 2019 21:14 (6 days ago)
Hi Bob, Ok but Rozenburg is the nearest location in the drop down menu!

Further to the above, Lloyds Index of 14/06/1976 shows 'Brazilian Mariner' (sic) returned to Rotterdam on 25 May after sea trials.

Ioannis Colocotronis sailed from Rotterdam on 6 June for the Persian Gulf.
Vassiliki Colcotronis sailed from Kharg Island, Iran on 24 May for Europort ( A circa 4+ week voyage).

Still put my money on the Ioannis!

Hi Del, I noticed the Colocotronis funnel too.
This is a fab photo and I think Ron Hutchins managed to capture three ULCC's in one shot :-)

The berth position, height of the funnel and it's trapezoid shape, means it can only be one of the two huge ships that Colocotronis ever owned:

1) Ioannis Colocotronis IMO 7360863, 392,798 dwt. delivered 31/01/1975
2) Vassiliki Colocotronis IMO 7360875, 379,999 dwt.
delivered on 11/07/1975.

Back then, ships were frequently drydocked once a year
(compared to once every five years now) and in any case, the 'guarantee drydock' had to be carried out after 12 months of service - more or less, in order for the builder to rectify and pay for any faults that had developed.

Bearing this in mind, my money would be on the 'Ioannis Colocotronis'.

Regards, Rick
