Greece and renamed Nissos Ithaki. 1981 ran aground near Gisan, refloated, declared constructive total loss. 1982 scrapped at Carachi.
I remember her well, always thought she looked good. Grew up in her home port, in which she lay often, and served on two ships in the company.
All that sun, and the reflex of the ship shimmering in the water; she looks so present that for half a second you think you can hire on and sail away again, with a new youth... Regards, Stein.
