Hi, Has anyone got any Info on a Denholm's managed Naess Clarion whom I sailed on In 1963. Thanks

I sailed on the bulk carrier Naess Pioneer from June 1962 till March 1963; most of the time between Newport News and Hamburg, but latterly between Trinidad and Port Aransas and Mobile. Our last cargo was grain from Westwego to Rotterdam. Yet it's now almost as if the ship never existed. The only mention I can find of her online is on the Nordseewerke GmbH website, where it gives the following information:-
Yard no. 320
Motor bulk carrier NAESS PIONEER
06.12.1960 to Norness Shipping Company Ltd., Bermuda
BRT: 20.200 BRT, Deadw.: 28.413 t, Output: 7.860 hp, Speed: 14,4 kts
Does anyone know what happened to the Pioneer? If anyone has a photo, I would be pleased to see it.

You are of course correct, on reflection it was the Favorita in that glass showcase.
P.S. I enjoy a glass of "Het Kanon",but if this is the effect it has on my memory
then I had better go back to drinking Amstel.
