I doscovered that there were two LCI at Navegação Bahiana - Cachoeira and Nazaré.

Until now my only register of an ex-LCI in cimmercial use at Brazil belongs to Companhia de Navegação Bahiana but I don't remember the name.

Not sure that there can be a "wing" on a circular structure? But, well spotted Yvon. I seems that TROPIC is the first of two words. Here's a candidate of the right ship-type, but I can offer no explanation for why she might have been in Brazil:

LCI(L)-869 built 1944 New Jersey Shipbuilding Co
1949 redesignated LSIL-869, landing ship infantry large
1952 renamed GOLDCREST (AMCU-24), coastal minesweeper unwater locator
1955 redesignated MHC-24) coastal minesweeper
1960 sold to Scott-Matson Farms In, Fort Pierce, Florida, renamed ABACO FARMER
1961 renamed TROPIC FARMER (IMO 5000641)
(the sequence of the last two names may have been reversed - sources vary)

Scott-Matson had farms in Florida, Abaco Islands Bahamas, Dominican Republic and Honduras (and they had also several other LCI(L)s though they didn't have "Tropic" names). Could the photo be from somewhere other than Brazil?

Hi Edson, I think she is GONÇALO COELHO, Ex TROPIC GALE, Ex LSM-119
Best regards

Correct Yvon ... this is the word "tropic" or the letters TRCPC.

Looks like a name is visible on the bridge's wing.
