Thanks for the name Dave..(Thumb) ..I see she had several sisters, what sets her apart from the others may I ask?

EAC had many similar ships but the earlier M class and Patagonia had bulwarks for the full length of the foc'sle, Poona and Pasadena had a shorter heavy derrick at number 2 and I thought all the subsequent S class had bipod masts, but the Sibonga did not and she also had the longer heavy derrick, in fact they appear virtually identical so I will revise my previous opinion and say either Pretoria or Sibonga.

Having thought about this I am now convinced she is Sibonga, not Pretoria. While Pretoria had a raked bow that of Sibonga also had the elegant curve seen here. Sorry to have mislead you but, unless there is a compelling reason otherwise, she is Sibonga.

Without undue admiration, if Dave Edge says it is, then there is every reason to feel sure it is. (Thumb) - The title has been edited to reflect his knowledge.

Many thanks to Dave for expertise and Gp for confirmation
As to Pat"s comments , she is underway would that mean she was chasing a tide?
