1980: owner's name changed to the Red Crescent Society of the Islamic Republic of Iran
Several sources indicate she was renamed “Ghods” in 1982, then “Iran Ghods” in 1983 & reverted back to “Ghods” in 1984.
At some point she seems to have become a training ship and re-registered in Tomé, Togo (not necessarily at the same time), and one source gives the last owner as Nejad Mousavian of Sharjah, U.A.E. (still under the name “Ghods”)
