On the same day as I took this photo, sister vessel MANDARINCORE showed up, too. See: http://www.shipsnostalgia.com/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/211974/title/mandarincore/cat/510

The "Mandarincore" was built by Bergens, designed by the Israeli's and was subject to a Grant from the Israeli Government, It was also directly owned by M.F. I was Relief Chief on the Bergens build until my last position as Chief on the "Satsumacore" before M.F. crashed. The "Avocadocore" was owned by one of the many Bank's and managed by M.F. It was a matter of pride within the Fleet as to the best kept vessel.
