hi Jan Tore, thanks for your suggestion, but when you compare with Gianpolo's foto of the FALCONE this vessel does not fit.

best regards, Markus

I believe she is an old Norwegian.
Built 1957 at Eriksberg as thr motortanker Fjordaas for M°rland in Arendal. Sold 1964 to Saanum in Mandal, renamed Ronastar. In 1965 she exploded, broke in two and sank while cleaning tanks in Rotterdam. Rebuilt as bulkcarrier Condo, owned by Jensen in Arendal. Sold 1972 to Vaboen in Kristiansand, renamed Hervang. Sold 1974 to Capo Falcone soc.di.nav.Spa. Cagliari, renamed Falcone. To be broken up in La Spezia 1983

I think she looks Italian built therefore would suggest she is "Falcon", built 1959 by Cant. di Nav Taranto for Atlantic Bulk Trading Corp. She was 10,456 grt and 16,485 deadweight which looks about right.
