The An Da Hai does not appear in the spring 04 Lloyds Shipping Index. She must have been sold or scrapped.

I remember battening down those cranes is a storm. The Trader was by far my most memorable voyage. Joined in Rotterdam and paid off in Lisbon 7 months later. We went up to Hamburg for dry docking then down to Amsterdam before departing for South America visiting Santos and Porto Allegra in Brazil, then Rosario and Bahia Blanca in Argentina, through the Straights of Magellan and up to Manzanillo Mexico then Vancouver before turning South again through Panama and back to Brazil to Sao Francisco De Sol and Paranagua then finally back to Europe. I remember recalling this voyage to friends at nautical college who had spent their time on gas ships bobbing around the English channel and they were very envious.
