|At Suez Canal.
Im not sure about the exact date, i do know that is was at the late 1980's.
Zim Hadera, was later renamed Blue Sky.
built in 1983.
A record scrap price has been achieved for a bulker.
On 2006, Zim has reportedly sold its 166,000-dwt bulker Blue Sky (formerly Hadera) for demolition to Bangladesh for a full $370.5 per ldt or $10.1m. The price is some $5 per ldt
higher than the previous record price for a bulker (true for 2006).
An earlier effort to sell the ship for further trading had failed to materialise.
I had some voyages on that massive bulker, and its quite sad that she is no longer with us.

:-) Good picture. Classical view when transitting Suez canal.
If she was buildt in 1983 and scrapped in 2006 she would have had a long service life. And, regardless of her her maintenance, ships at this age, and a bulker as well, she would draw a lot of attention from PSCO in alsmost any port.
Sad as it may be, enjoy the good memories, there is always another ship... :-)
