alexds the company name is incorrectly spelt and should be Skaugen Petro Trans.

Originally built as SPT CHAMPION (SPT means Scagen Petro Trans) for lightering operations in US Gulf. Davits on port side fitted for Yokohama fenders, bow thruster and ballasat pumps with more capasity to compare similar AfraMaxes.

After viewing the links provided by Bob & Jim I was looking at a photo I posted a few years ago in Gibraltar of the KWK EXCELSUS involved in a transhipment in the bay. Those struts weren't visible on her deck and she's huge. So I wonder why not all vessels have these.

There is one thing that I have noticed on this site, people are very willing and keen to offer information at the drop of a hat. It's great and impressive. Thank you !

Thanks Jim. I see how it works now - visually descriptive. But not all vessels have these?
