The Albistan of 1948 was an odd one out in Strick's postwar fleet. According to some histories she was originally ordered from Shorts by the Australasian Co. but was taken over before the keel was laid. She had neither the size or style of the Aussie company, so presumably her design came from elesewhere. They might have taken an existing hull design and added a superstructure etc to Strick's spec, but if so, why does she look more like an enhanced warbuilt than any other Strick? She doesn't look anything like anything else Short's built either. Anyone happen to know anything about her?
