Welcome aboard, Cathy.
It looks like she's still there.
I'm sure the crew will soon let you know if her fate is other than a watery grave.
Have a good voyage on our happy ship.

Trentbank collided with the Portuguese tanker Fogo on 18 September 1964 NNW of Alexandria en route Port Pirie to Liverpool. If I remember correctly both were westbound and the Trentbank suffered an auto-pilot malfunction and sheered across the bows of the Fogo. She was taken in tow the following day by the Liberian tanker Harold H. Helm but foundered off Port Said on the 24th. Refloated the following day and towed to Piraeus where she arrived 6 December to be broken up. Apparently she wasn't broken up until 1970.

I found this photo of an upturned ship being towed by a Vernicos tug.

In a 1977 articles, K.Vernicos mentioned of "a almost recent salvage of TRENTBANK and towage to Piraeus from Port Said, upside down".
Could this be a photo of this event?
