I docked this ship on many occasions and she lasted much longer than similar C-3's due to her conversion to carry containers and was not scrapped until 1982 if memory serves correctly. My classmate Jim ***** was master. We'll be having our 50 year reunion up at Lake Tahoe in September; where did all those year go??

Agreed about the years. Had a classmate call me last night about our 35th. . . told him that I wouldn't make it, so he penciled me in for our 50th. . . .
