Actually if you puts HEAPS more contrast in and alter the "gamma" - and possibly convert to greyscale you'll just about be convinced. In any case the vessel is a good match for Gorjistan:

Wonder who took the photo in Mauritius. My first trip to sea as jnr R/O was on Gorjistan and we had 6 weeks in Mauritius waiting for the sugar harvest (someone had to do it). That was in the late 60's.
We took the sugar to St Johns, New Brunswick.
