The only other ship of that name that i have come across is this one.
Thanks for the response. The first photo is the pre sea training ship Vindicatrix at Sharpness which I went to in the summer of 65. The second photo is one of Jebsons but the wong one. The one I`m after had differant shaped accom and derricks instead of cranes. Thanks janathull
Joined her I think it was May in 74 in Albany WA bound for Hamburg. Vessel broke down of Port Elizabeth,RSA and after a few days drifting we got a tow into CapeTown. Sandy Ritchie was master.
Sharpnes remained in CT until mid July when crankshaft was replaced and after trials was able to continue to Hamburg.
I believe some of the Jebsen S class bunkers were converted from derricks to cranes in the later 70s. I sailed on Swiftness and Sealnes and they had derricks and electric grabs. I got a photo from Photoflight of Swiftnes in the 80s and she had cranes By then. It was the same hull. I know Jebsens were also looking into making mods to the S class to accommodate containers too. Hope that helps.
