In this shot, taken september, 1984 from my former house, an old twin-bridge tanker is entering drydock for scrapping at "Crinavis" scrapyard, in San Roque (Spain). Although the name cannot be seen in the photo I can remember the name of the tanker as "FRIO" or something similar. Possibly USA registered (Baltimore). Anyone can confim it?

In the foreground, tanker "ALMIRANTE ROTAECHE" (Spanish registered - Bilbao) is awaiting to be moored again, once the drydock gateways are closed for the old twin-bridge tanker. ALMIRANTE ROTAECHE was moored this way during several years in front of my house until it was sold to chinese owners in late 80's. I also welcome any info on this last ship.

Thank you for your quick reply, carimar. Indeed, the last photo of this vessel afloat (the drydock, although cannot be seen in the photo, is some 100 meters ahead of the bow) :-P
