Is this one of Tsi Vered Rosenfeld's (better known for his ABC Containerline conbulk ships of the late 1970s-1990s) earlier ships? The funnel isn't quite his ABC livery but is orange and the diamond shaped CBC is familiar - and she's registered in Antwerpen.

As I recall, the funnel says GBC, as in Ghent Bulk Carriers. I don't know anything else about the owners, but I do recall the ship had an all-Belgian complement, save for one fellow from Zaire.

Thanks for that - GBC would figure - Ghent Bulk Carriers. That was a Rosenfeld company name prior to his Antwerp Bulk Carriers (ABC) Containerline.
