Hello Allan,

a big thanks for sharing this one!
First the news that she's sold for scrap and now I learn that she's already sailing for India... Well, apart from your photo January, 9, 2009 is definitely not my day!

Best regards,

Hello Dr. Allan,

just learned that she is leaving Piraeus roads en route to Alang for beaching. Sad news...
