Texaco North Dakota

Texaco North Dakota

She struck an unlit oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico in the late 1970's.
All survived the blaze, and the stern was welded to a new bow I believe
Note the melted life boat and the slice in the stem.

They sold a plastic model toy of this ship in the 1960s, I still see them for sale on Ebay. I suppose someone could "update" their model to look like this.

Rumour has it that the OOW at the time was sighted in Beaumont as a Marine Super. '99-00. at the Exxon Mobile terminal!
