Thanks for your comment, Andrew. New life, yes...
But once they get their military gray paintwork, they all start looking the same to me... Here at Busan anchorage I often see the "Red Cloud", which is two times younger than this one here, but I still have trouble telling them apart.

Another nice shot of this oldie Vlad, nice to see some of the old boxships can get a new life.

Thanks, Roy. Once an old ship joins the USNS crowd, I think her future becomes much brighter, so I'd say she'll be around for some time...

Hi Vlad, even further back in time, one of the old EAC ships still around. Wonder how long they will keep this one.
Anyway very nice catch!
