Hi all

Could somebody help fill in some ownership details for the above:

Built in 1962 for Tenax Steamship Co Ltd Ltd (Mgrs Kr.Jebsen, Norway)

Sold in either 1970 or 1980 (?) and renamed Apiliotis, any idea of the name of the new owner and flag?

Sold in 1986 and renamed Milos A, again any idea of the new owners and flag? She obviosly didn't stay with them long as I beleive she was broken up in 1986

Many thanks

NigelC

Hi Ruud

Many thanks for filling another gap, at that rate I think she must have change ownership in 1970 not 1980, I couldn't read my own writing. As for the IMO Nr. I have no idea where I got it from and was very dubious as to it's accuracy

Thanks again

NigelC

I think the problem is that IMO numbers are being mistaken for Offical Numbers.
IMO numbers didn't come into being until a few years ago (around 2000 I think).

Ruud,
Possibly, to be honest I didn't start taking too much notice of it until they started painting it in prominent places on ships!

Hi Gydnia

It was definately the one built in 1963 that I am interested in, we, the Brimnes and my vessel the Athelprince (Bulker), were crossing the Pacific from Panama to Australasia, NZ for us and Aussie for them, at the same time and I was in regular W/T contact with them and as that was in 1965 it was definately the earlier of the two.

Hi Gydnia

Thanks, but I'm getting a bit confused here (not difficult for my brain) you say that you believe the photo to be that of the newer Brimnes ie the one that became the Marina del Equa. However in "Tankers" note he appears to indicate that the pic is not of that vessel.

I never actually saw the vessel during the crossing having only W/T contact.

(I am also trying to track down owners when she was the Milos A)

Regards

Sorry for confusing you David but I agree with Tanker its just the way Ive put down second built. I would say she is not Marina del Equal.

The thumbnail is of the first "Brimnes" as the second had cranes instead od derricks.
Sister ship was "Bernes" GRT 22901.37 # 58726 Circa 1972(?)

Hi,
This is the second one.
cheers.
Interesting co-incidence,I worked on this vessel both as 'Brimnes' and 'Apiliotis' in Oz.Oddly it was the Greek captain who gave me a bottle of Aquavit that reads ' M.V 'Bernes passed the line Sept.1964'
Until I just looked at the bottle I always thought thatit read 'Brimnes' ! Another mystery,how a bottle of 'Bernes Aquavit ended up on 'Brimnes
The bottle remains boxed and un-opened after all these years,know idea how.....Regards....Greg Hughes
