Tanker KITION

Has anyone got a Llloyds for 1983 - 1886? I am looking for the physical details of a tanker KITION that was towed out from Saldanha in 1985 / 1986 bound for the scrap yards. Previously she had almost sunk off the Cape after internal flooding, She was salved by Smit Pentow and towed into Saldanha to do an alongside ship to ship cargo transfer. She was about an 175,000 tonner. Thanks for any help.

Thanks Ted and Albie for the speedy responses. That is most definitely her! I must write the story of the ship to ship transfer, talk about exciting. I had just been upped to the Port Captains position and it was my first job in the 'hot seat'! We managed to get through it without any injury or damage to a successful outcome. Thans again for the help.

Glad to have been of assistance, look forward to reading of your experience, tales from the man who was there are always worth reading.
