An interesting name in as much as this company did trade outside the Geat Lakes during the closed season, but I was not aware that they had a great interest in Polynesia, but clearly they must have done to name a ship after the area.

There is a little more background to the company on here:

Of all the postcards I've uploaded in the last few days, I think this one has the finest lines, smart looking boat. Tony

She is a good looking ship.
Were some of the Saguenay ships with "Sunpoly" in the name under Norwegian flag?

She also looks to be very low in the water. I would think that it is a bit unusual to write the name of the shipping company so low down that it coincides with the Plimsoll Mark.

Frank, This one was anyway. Built to a standard design from Eriksbergs in 1957 for Jorgen Jensen (Einar Rasmussen) of Kristiansand and time-chartered to Saguenay. 1971 sold Greek owners, renamed "Stella", 1982 "Alkmini A", 31 March 1984 at Gadani Beach for breaking up.

Hi Ruud, Thanks for the kind comments. These were the last of the shoebox full of postcards I told you about a few months ago. And none of these were put on my website, but I think it\'s only fair to share them with like minded people, and I hope a lot of the lads will like them. Rg Tony (and Gals!!) P.S. Would I be right in saying that her hatches are open!!!

Ahoy Tony,
No thanks at all, it\'s just a pleasure to see lovely old postcards posted, for sharing with others and that is been appreciated by us, so a kindly comment is at the right place here.
I think you could be right about those hatches,maybe another will admit this.
Anyway she's anchored, so there is a possibility for it, that they made her ready to unload.

I'm really pleased to see your postcard. I sailed from Port-of-Spain, Trinidad in the West indies leaving port on Monday July 13, 1970 up the Atlantic through the mouth of the St. lawrence, then up the Saguenay to Port Alfred, Quebec, arriving the 22nd of July. The cargo was bauxite in the holds. After unloading we went on our way to Montreal.

The crew was Norwegian, though we sailed under a Canadian flag, being a Canadian shipping line.
