Blikur, Tórshavn

Blikur, Tórshavn

There have been a long series of 'Blikur' cargo ships sailing between Denmark and Faeroes for the 'Skipafelagid'. I think the first arrived in 1956 or so. Today is a containership.
Think this one is nr 3. Built in Søviknes 1963. Perhaps I'm wrong?

The Blikur ( 2 ) built in Søviknes, Norway in 1965 must be this one http://www.shipspotting.com/modules/myalbum/photo.php?lid=341049 she was named Blikur from 1965 - 1974.
I also think the one in your photo must be Blikur ( 3 ) but built in 1966 in Kaldnes, Norway as Senja. She was named Blikur from 1974 - 1979.
