Misidentified Vessel 2

Postby Dennis Maccoy » Mon Oct 26, 2020 7:29 pm

I took this picture at Antwerp on the occasion of the WSS AGM in May 1999. The ship's name seems to be Mapmapa 3, but I can't find any reference to it in Miramar, Equasis, LR, Shipspotting or Marine Traffic - can anyone clear up the mystery?

That was quick Ron - thanks. The names at both bow and stern seem to have been partially obscured – one or two letters partially corroding is not surprising – but all four letters R? Some skulduggery perhaps!

Dennis,
Think she was Ukraine flag so maybe Cyrillic lettering? There P = R.
