I am still confused, LaFlamme! I have a picture of the Countess, buried in snow, leaving Little Narrows on her way south just before Christmas '69, and she does not have the 2 stern gantries nor the unloading belt at that time. For the life of me, I don't remember ever seeing them. Is it possible that the Countess came north and then returned to the Caribbean for more charter work? As I stated in a previous blog, I can't find my sign on / off papers for the Countess. I know that I left her in time to return to a summer job with the C.B.C. in Halifax, which would have started around May 1 of '70...
