I am looking for a picture of the Caribbean Endeavour built I think in Hamburg and managed by Common Brothers of Newcastle in early 1970s. Anybody help?

Renamed ARISTEFS 00/1979

I was on her from 18th May to 7th November 1973 as second mate. I joined in Hamburg and paid off in Miami. We had two main runs during that time. We started off a run between St John New Brunswick to St Johns Newfoundland with trailer homes and cars. Then after a drydock in Smiths, North Shields we started a run from Miami to Honduras and Guatemala. The crew by then were all from the Caribbean. Could you possibly post your pictures of her as I have none at all.

When i was on the Caribbean Endeavour, she had a grey hull and the structure over the deck forward of the accomadation was not there so she has a totally different look about her.

I sailed on the Caribbean Endeavour Sep 1974 to Feb 1975 joined her in Miami and did regular runs to Barrios in Guatemala, i remember one night we picked up the crew of a burning yacht just off Havana, the skipper, his daughter, her boyfriend, a Doberman pincer and a Kinkajoo monkey, a couple of days later the monkey thanked me by pissing all over me while sitting on my shoulder.

I sailed on the CE 21/9/71 (Hull) to 3/3/72 (New York) as EDH.
Started off running from Trieste to Lebanon etc, but soon diverted to New York/Miami to Dominican Republic and Kingston Jamaica.
I've been trying to find a photo of her in her original guise but without success.
