Anyone know what happened to this tanker, or if it's still around?
It was another one profiled in National Geographic, I am kind of disappointed there were no pictures of it.

Wow, this one survived longer than almost any of them! I'm surprised it didn't get caught up in the scrap metal bloodbath of the 80's.

It was laid up in Brunei Bay and looked after by BP Ship Care. It had the most gi-normus sat nav that I tried to programme with no luck.
