We were told at that time she was built in 1926 but I can not confirm this. Bill Harrison
I had noted that 'Sulaco' could be discounted on design differences, it seemed to me.
From the length of the ship's name at the bow, even when enhanced and still heavily blurred, I thought it was indeed Sinaloa, but it was more a guess than factual.
On the basis of your unique porthole count and hard work, I will allocate her name as 'Sinaloa'.
a) Sinaloa IMO 5328938
b) Sulaco IMO 5343483
c) Samala IMO 5308550
All built 1931/32 in the US.
