Woonplaats : Leixoes  30-12-04 21:04 Another spot for Today,
No history on this ship, first impression was an ex Smit but as I got closer she began to have a slight Jebsen Norway look about her, any clues ???

all the best

Woonplaats : melides, Portugal  30-12-04 21:46 You might be right Peter.
I don' t recognize the lifeboat.
Does she have deckgear?
All Smits ships had cranes or derricks.

All the best, and a very good 2005!

Woonplaats : Leixoes  30-12-04 22:24 Hi Eric,
I dont think she had deck gear, also the name beneath Mikue was not readable. all the best to you for 2005 also, thanks, another ship here today was "Ponte do sol" owned by Traninsular Portugal and she runs regular container line to the Azores and Madeira and sometimes cape verde and guine Bissau.
all the best,
