Beautiful C4, Marc!!!
rgds asnyk :-)
very intersting vessel, Marc, not as beautiful as the reefers and the british cargo vessels of that time.
But I like it much as well.
She sure is a golden oldie. I remember one of her sisters, OGDEN MISSOURI, which also came up the St.Lawrence River in the mid-70s. Interesting conversions.
