Yes, a fine ship, and one that I remember vividly. She was originally an oil tanker, but converted into a bulk carrier. In 1970, she caught the breakwater at Genoa in a severe storm and was lost, with 20 of her crew of 58. At the time, I was in the passenger liner Reina del Mar (pictured below), leaving port at the same time, and we came very close to the breakwater, but cleared it OK, with about 1,000 passengers, and 350 crew aboard - Bob
