The 1952 Krimpen built ELXIS, owned by N.Leondaras and P.Kallikis of Piraeus - who had also owned ENARXIS (ex VLIST) and MARIAN (ex MARIANNA ex RAMON DE LARRINAGA) - is seen passing Portishead, outbound from Avonmouth exactly fifty years ago, on 5th February 1970.

EX- ARGOS-69 (KNSM)

ELXIS foundered off Catania on 7th October 1971 after suffering a flooded engine room during a voyage from Barreiro, in the Setúbal District of Portugal, to Famagusta with a cargo of fertiliser.

Not one of Larrinaga`s of Liverpool despite the name. I sailed on the 1954 built one & it was built by Pickersgill, Sunderland.

Gentlemen, for clarity:

1) ELXIS foundered after suffering a flooded engine room
2) MARIAN, the former RAMON DE LARRINAGA, was owned by the same people
