Hi Ruud. Punto Cervo was in collision with Dutch "mv Ceta" 22nd Jan 1969. Captain of Ceta died, rest of crew saved by Punto Cervo. You may already know this. If not i hope it helps. All the best. Barney.

Ahoy Barney,

Yep, I knew that story,this quest is made for his son, he can't find anything of that tanker, so do I.
Btw a sailorman died as well, in that collision.
