Shell/s MYRINA launch

Again,previous pic made better by Ron;Shell tanker again launching in 1967.Think she originally was for Norwegian owners,taken by Shell and lengthened on the berth.
At the time she was the largest German registered ship and received a civic reception in Hamburg.

Think I met the subsequent one a few years later. (Gosh those tankers did not last long.)
May have been one of the first customers in the then new big drydock in Belfast around 1970. Hey, it is over 40 yrs ago.
She was there perhaps because either she or her sister(s) MACTRA, etc had tank washing problems which ended in a big bang!
Remind us, shipmates & ashoremates.
