Certainly the large volumes of copra these ships carried in bulk would disqualify them from the container catoegory. The floating device next to her I'm sure is for the discharge of this item, I saw much the same view in Rotterdam in 1985.
As photographed here, this ship is not a containership but rather a multi-purpose general cargo ship and should be filed accordingly. |

I have sailed on this ship from May 1978 to Sept. 1978, when she was still in the grey "Hansa" livree and named GUTENFELS.
