Orange Star

25 december 2004 I spotted the Orange Star on the Waterweg going out . It was a former Blue Star Reefer, but I lost the information when I changed computers. I think it was the Tasmania Star. Who helps?
best regards

Orange Star

Saw her whilst serving on the Canterbury Star near Tampa. No 4 lower tweens have been converted to workshops and stainless steel tanks built into the other hatches. Concentrated orange juice is a very strong acid!!!!!
They are a good looking set of ships which as stated above are 30years old. Mind you Blue Star ships always looked good
