RUBY, Zaandam 211g 97n with a 3-cyl Brons, built 1939 at Waterhuezen as WIENA. Pic is post 1953, when the EMERGO was renamed RUBY by M. de Vries. A regular Cornish trader and a vessel that loaded roadstone at St. Germans; Remember her passing Jupiter Point in the summer of 1954 with a large black dog as lookout.
