Am 100% certain she was scrapped in mid 2005.
30 odd years for a vessel that is essentialy a big floating parking station is a credit to her froggy builders and subsequent owners.

David D,

I think she went earlier than 2005 - will have to check. Her engines were one of the reasons for her withdrawal.
