Nice picture of a nice ship!

There is a book, based i.a. on Polish Ocean Lines' records, dealing with "Hel" collision in 1987. According to it, the ship finished the one before last voyage (No.41) still in March 1987. Then, for more than a month she was staying in Gdańsk Repair Shipyard for maintenance. Then, the voyage No.42 started formally on 05.05. with collecting cargo in Gdynia until 23.05., a call to Hamburg 25-26.05. and arrival to Antwerp on 28.05. in the morning. "Hel" left Antwerp in the evening of 29.05. and was rammed by "Skyron" on the very next morning.
Luckily, with no personal injuries and limited environment pollution only.

Considering good coating condition I am wondering, if the picture was rather taken during this last stay in Antwerp, on 28-29.05.1987?
