Rochester, 12/4/81. In the 70s and early 80s, Crescent Shipping had a couple of unusual vessels to compliment their fleet of standard dry cargo motor barges and coasters. One was a side-loading palletised cargo ship (the name escapes me, but it began with 'D'), the other was the bulk starch carrier Resurgence, shown here.

Though long-gone, as far as I know, it remains the only vessel ever built specifically for this purpose.

think this photo was taken after she went on fire, and scrapped. she ran from delfzyl to howdendyke where the starch was made into glucose at the tate and lyle factory there.i sailed as chief, 77/78 the e.r. was running good, but we spent a lot of time working on the cargo discharge system, the good side was average time in howdendyke about 3/4 days, the fire unfortunately caused the death of the 2nd. mate.
