I did my 3rd trip to sea as SOS April to July 1962 on her. I dont know if it was this trip as we did 4 ports that arent mentioned, Oakland, Stockton, Tacoma and New Westminster.

Hi Sheriff, Could be! Not intended to be a complete list, just a general outline of the run. Think the photo was that trip but just may be the following one - July to October. Anyhow, hope the pic brought back some happy memories !

hi chasd, i also sailed as sos on her in 1966, iff i remember right we also called in at guatamala,then L A, FRISCO, SEATTLE, PORTLAND,VANCOUVER, NEW WESTMINSTER,and a place called gold river, this was due to a landslide, and they needed some stores and equipment taking in, a very nice ship, with a fantastic swimming pool on the fore deck, also i might add a good feeder, as she was the only cargo ship i ever sailed in were there was a baker besides a 2nd cook,, regards johnny2dogs
