Better late than never. I came across the site and this site is about Esso T3 tankers and if you persevere to the end you will find a photo of a box boat conversion of the Esso Los Angeles, that ship was converted to SeaLand's 30 ft. containers which finally had to give way to TEU's. I joined the ship in Jurong dry dock in Singapore in 1989 where 2 of them were having the hold cell guides, hold bulkheads and the hatch covers converted to 20, 40, and 45 ft. configuration. Re-named Sea Adventure and Sea Pioneer they were quite handy ships and were used as feeders on the Rotterdam - Med run, also took part in Desert Storm.
I left in 1993 so Esso T3 tankers were still going strong although you may not have recognised them.

Failing that I shall paint it as US flagged Esso Worcester, formerly Multnoman. I have a decent photo of her, only one query, what colour were the decks? I seem to recall Boot Topping Red?

As a Trident Tanker Apprentice of the 60's I have fond memories of seeing T's, and associate them more with Esso and Mobil than any other company.

Caltex had stacks of t2s under the British flag. You should be able to find that trademark somewhere.
