Hi Mac

Lloyds report that her status as 'Continued Existence In Doubt'.

Her latter history appears to be:
1994-11 Flagged by Unknown
1993-11 Name changed to HAWKEYE EXPRESS, Flagged by Belize, Owner Kloster International

Miramar doesn't show any disposal date for her - hopefully some of the guys in the CG Category can cast some light on the question of her fate?

Hi Mac

We tend to keep all of the Coastguard Ships in the one category - this includes any type of vessel which is owned/leased/operated by the CG. I have relocated your shot and thought I would let you know the reason why.
