I am researching a photo to be able to do a line drawing for my cousin who was on the UK Flagged vessel 'Aqaba Crown in the 80's. He said she was Sea Containers owned.

Her previous names were many but she was, in her time: Columbus Capricorn - Ursus - Rienzi - Sofala.

All he can recall is she was buiolt by Rickmers!

Any help appreciated!

Hi Jonty ...

I may be able to help you, but need access to my pic drive which I don't have at the moment, hopefully I will by early next week.

Cheers

Ian,

She was Rickmer's built and is a smaller feeder type combi job. There are photos of her as Hilar Mas and she is described as a container vessel. I am after her as Aqaba Crown.

Cheers though - hat photo site is an excellent one by the way.

I sailed as a deck hand on the Aquaba crown between Rotterdam and the Red Sea ports in 1977, have many great memories but sadly only one good photo which may help you out.
She was a sea containers roll on roll off if that's the correct ship you are researching?

Hi Jonty, it looks like the correct IM0 number is 7328645 there are 3 photos of Her on the Shipspotting.com site with the 11 different names she has/had just google the IM0 number and that will lead you to a potted history of the ship and some photos of Her. Good luck with your search and maybe one of the previous posters will confirm this post by looking at Shipspotting. com site to check that I have not mistakenly sent you on a fools errand. Cheers J.W
