If Shoshin Maru is correct her IMO is 6612879
later (1977) renamed in Chemcarry No.20

Cisco, it is not my fault that the MARU Line is such a large company, at least my guess got people going.....

Radio call sign of SHOSHIN MARU was supposedly JG2299. The "G" seems a bit off, but the rest is a clear match to what can be seen in the photo.

House flag and funnel marking of Showa Yusosen were a stylized red "S" and two red stripes on a white background, which could match what can be seen of the funnel.

Possibly IMO 6612879, the LPG tanker SHOSHIN MARU, 637 GT, built in 1966 by Setoda Kisen and operated by Showa Yusosen KK.

SHUSHIO least that's what it looks like blown up to full size.

Ah, one of the Maru Line :)

Flag hoist is JTPP99 - that would also be her radio call sign.
