The "Cape Sable" had a somewhat convoluted end. Renamed "Elizabeth" in 1966 and "Koraes" in 1974 on 29 November 1976 she caught fire in the Mississippi River near New Orleans and was severely damaged amidships. Declared a CTL she was sold to US breakers at Brownsville where she arrived 10 May 1977. She was then resold to a Brownsville company called Andy International for rebuilding. In 1978 renamed "Elka" and arrived Kaohsiung prior to 2 September 1980 for breaking up.
