Thanks, Phil & Pieter, for the ID. I remember now that she was on her way to the scrapyard when I saw her.

Miramar reports Saadallah as broken up in China 8-85. Photograph is dated July 85, state of the ship is very close to scrap, and the lettering on the stern also matches the name also.

Hi Bob, I hink there's some Arabic lettering there and the name ends in "_LAH"

I think it could be SAADALLAH - ex TEXAS MARU
