I dont know what was changed, this is only what I've found:
AGIOS SPYRIDON 1976 ex MARAKI-89 ex FIRBANK-83 ex SIBONGA-79 ex FIRBANK-77
BRT:7545 DWT:12945 classed till 3/5/89
L.o.a. x br. x h :161,53 x 21,42 x 8,230/9,732
Eng.:'Doxford 2SA 6Cy. 670 x 2144 8.827kW/12000bhp
There's the difference, some ship names, never changes, and some change twice a year, and then the building years, that's also important for searching the right ship records.Anyway you're welcome with these data records, it's just a matter of time looking for these, and I do have about 12 LR's of ships, plus the Cd-rom, so most of the demanded are coming out.
