That ties in with the "sold while still on the stocks" story I heard.

Luxor was my first ship as a green behind the ears Prenticle. Joined Feb 1961 and left in Aug of that year. Well found and very smart vessel (Well she was Brand New) My next ship was the Lumen Built about 1950 I think and That was possibly the worst voyage of my entire seagoing career. But that is another story......pete
