At last, she sank in the sea of Marmara 20.06.2010, maybe the last 19th century ship to do so. But with grab dredger on deck she did not look like anything more but a seventies coaster...
best regards

Phil You are right about ship design.possible modified in 1970.

Great shot, but what an interesting ship! However, I am really wondering if Equasis is correct on this one. There is nothing about the hull that suggests a 104 year old ship, nor a 50 year old one for that matter. In fact the whole ship looks very 1970s. Maybe there is a very small part of a 104 year old ship in there somewhere, but it isn't obvious. :-)
