Clive-- see shipspotting, search "Jess C. Winters" or try this link:
http://www.shipspotting.com/modules/myalbum/photo.php?lid=63970

this ship is captioned as being formerly the one you search for, though modified by conversion to a bulkcarrier.

Hope this helps.Regards

G'day John

Sorry I've been a bit slow with my response but, as you know, the site itself has been very slow the last week or so. The info was good. I checked Ships Spotters, as you suggested, and was a bit surprised to see once again a tanker converted to a bulker. Hardly recognisable from what I remember. Seems the hull was the only thing the same, everything else was different. I hope to be getting an image of the James Stove sometime in the future which I will post.

Regards for now, Clive Fisher

As they say, it's a small world after all when you think about some things are often just at your doorstep. Mind you, Brisbane is 1100kms away from me.

Thanks to you and your friends another ship located and mystery solved!

This particular vessel played a vital role in the rise of Ampol shortly after the Second World War through to the early 1950s, being on a long term charter with them.

Your input was greatly appreciated also.

Regards Clive.
