Super duper photo of San Fraterno in dock. Looks as is they are flooding up ready to depart.

All these earlier oil tankers have a certain mystique, long lost. What is also remarkable is the amount of damage they could sustain, especially in war, and survive. They were not as incendiary as many think.

Eagle Oil originally intended all their ships would be named San (Saint) with a Spanish Saints name ending in O as here, it almost worked. There must have been considerable religious references researched.
Thats all folks. Sean.
