Yes Don, in 1968, the Universe Ireland was the largest ship in the world.. it was only in 1979 that our small friend was built…(Jester)

I remember seeing the Universe Apollo in the distance at sea in the early 1960s - she looked huge and everyone admired her, now a mere 100,000 tonner, but who at that time would ever envisage 500,000 + vessels - I didnt.

I understand that the manifolds were only on the starboard side when the ship was build and the port side added later which makes this picture was taken later.
