KISSAVOS

In the foreground the Greek tanker KISSAVOS, IMO 5189382. Two years later she arrived at the RDM yard with heavy bow damage, see https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/1154474/title/kissavos/cat/523

The bulk carrier in the middle is unknown, the tanker to the right on the photo

The ship in the middle is COSMIC, oil/ore carrier built in 1957 by Kawasaki, Kobe (951), IMO 5080770, Gt 30.332, 48.184 tdw, broken up in 1978 at Kaohsiung.
In 1960 she changed flag from LIB to GRC, in the photo the painting of the name in Greek letters is ongoing at the stern.

Manfred, just a question.

Cosmic ( Lemos Co. ), I think, had a sister ship named Epic - could Epic perhaps also be the ship in the middle ?

Edit: Dynamic, also a sister ship, but her name may not fit.

Regards.

Hi Jesper,

a better resolution might tell the numbers of letters at the stern, looks more than 4 like in EPIC to me.

She is not DYNAMIC, she had small additional supports (2 each) between the mains at the accommodation.

Thank you Manfred.

You are probably right, that this is Cosmic.

Regards.
