Ahoy Zelda,
There's the difference, some ship names, never changes, and some change twice a year, and then the building years, that's also important for searching the right ship records.Anyway you're welcome with these data records, it's just a matter of time looking for these, and I do have about 12 LR's of ships, plus the Cd-rom, so most of the demanded are coming out.

Ahoy Tinkerboy,
Any idea which year for the SUMMITY,as there were quit a few of that name,could it be the Everard 1939 built?
