View Full Version : Inagua Beaver - West India Line

Has anyone got any information for the vessel "Inadua Beaver", or the company "West India Line".
The picture was taken in 1977 somewhere between the Persian Gulf and Curacao.
Could she have been an early Rig Supply Ship?. The funnel marking seems to be a diamond with a "C", or "G" in it. As to her cargo, I haven't a clue what she is carrying, looks like scrap.

Could the first word of the name have been "Inagua"? This would make more of a link with West Indies - we used to use the Inagua passage when UK-bound from Jamaica.

Many thanks. I have been pondering this for years, The "G" certainly looks like a "D" in the photo, but a "G" it is. Now I can carry on with the next one.

My father was chief mate on the "inagua gull" is there any one could provide a picture of the vessel and it's location?

Inagua Gull, after a number of name changes is now Caribe Star 1.
This (http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/shipdetails.aspx?MMSI=372964000) AIS information holds some details and a photograph - it looks like she is around Miami or the Bahamas. (Thumb)
