Gaz Mallorca

Has anybody out there a picture of this semi-pressurised gas tanker GRT 3826and registered in Panama.
I sailed on her in 1986 having got the job (in a hurry) from Matt Clark's agency on King Street in South Shields. I believe the owner/operator was based in Majorca and was spanish/british.
She had a B & W VTBF engine.
With all my working life spent at sea I can honestly say this was by far away the worse ship I ever sailed or even boarded!
I think she was chartered to Naftomar of Greece and she may, at onetime, have been owned by them, sold and then chartered back or some such arrangement.
Trade was US Gulf/Caribbean/Central and South America.
I would guess she was 20 years + at that time and in very bad condition.
