Seen here, outward bound passing  the Humber Bridge, on the 23rd September 1986.

Built in 1954  by Gebr. Bodewes Scheepswerf "Volharding" at Foxhol.
Owners H. K. Shaw, Panama registered.

A regular visitor to the River Hull, this ship was responsible for many traffic jams as the bridges were opened
to allow her to pass through. Eventually sold to West African owners and I believe capsized and sunk at a berth.
