Toliara

Hope this helps - there is a photo of her as the " Toliara" in my gallery . I cannot work out how to give you the exact webpage for it , so you will just have to trawl through my photos , sorry.
She has been laid up at Las Palmas for a few years now and is in a state fit for scrap only.
About 3 years ago I spoke to the new owners who , at that time , were Russian. Little progress was made in getting her seaworthy / shipshape before the money ran out and she was abandoned.
Not before they had painted " Island Shipping Company" on the funnel though !
I was looking at her last night - she is laid up against a terrible rustbucket , the " Ramaz" , and the ranging movement of the Toliara has badly damaged her bridegwing and deck.

Let me know if you want more photos or detail.
Best wishes,
Rick
