Does anybody have further information on the Dutch ship, M/V Alkaid?
I sailed from Rotterdam to Montreal in the summer of 1960 or 1961.
I have three pictures which I could post if I knew the correct place.

PS. I noticed that there are a few ships with that name.
This one was a freighter with 3 holds forward and 2 holds aft.

Ahoy Eric,

Indeed, there a few more with that name, but I think this should be the one you're looking for:
After she grounded in 1964 as Agios Nikolaos III at Sea-Cow Head,demolished at Bilbao in 1965

Ruud,
Not that large.
It was a general cargo ship.
Sailed 1966 from Newport, Wales to Montreal.
I didn't think to take pictures that time.

Gdynia found this for a private message:
Cargo ship Built: 1962 Tonnage: 11 376 gross.
Owner: Angbats A/Bm Ferm, Sweden.

Title: Port News: Wellington

Ruud,
I didn't remember it as big as the picture you sent. It seemed to be a general cargo ship similar to the Alkaid but newer.

Sailing as a Dutch ship, you could have eaten off the deck inside the accommodation. I remember the awesome soups and all manner of cheeses. I ate well on the crossing.
