M.V. Sagamore, iron ore carrier, 1957

Post by Voyager » Fri Jul 26, 2013 4:41 pm

I am just completing an e-book covering two ore carriers, Sagamore and Silverdon. I sailed in both of them! Please can anyone supply me with a scan of a photo of either or both of them Sagamore and Silverdon that I can put in this e-book? I do have a number of pictures taken aboard, but the more the merrier, so to speak. I am really looking for images that the donor actually took themselves, together with permission to publish. Although the book is specifically designed for a Nook, it will work in a computer as an Acrobat reader file.

Yes,
That is the one. Broke up in South China Sea in late 1990s with only 3 or 4 survivors. Then Fei Cui Hai, Chinese registry.

Thanks,
That was a long time after I left, but glad to see the old ship still very smart and clean. After conversion to Capitan Alberto,
I think that Nr 2 hatch must have been just about the longest in the world (Original Nrs 1 & 2 joined up)
