Scrap Update

Overcrowded Alang has just polished off Yugoslav-built liners DALMACIJA and GLORY (ex ANNA NERY, etc.).  Sadly, the WINNER 5 (ex AUSONIA, IVORY, AEGEAN tWO) has begun to succumb after waiting two months for another ship in her plot to be finished and for winchers to drag her closer to shore.  MAESTRO (ex RENAISSANCE, etc.) is expected shortly after diverting to an anchorage off Bombay for the past couple weeks.  Ferries OUZOUD (ex PETER PAN, FEDRA, etc.) and GIULIA D’ABUNDO (ex NILS DACKE) are the latest arrivals while SAGA ROSE made a half circumnavigation of the world from Gibraltar around Africa, past Singapore and up to an anchorage off Shanghai, where she eventually proceeded to a berth in the industrial town of Jiangyin, known for its steel and scrap industry.  It appears this will be where she meets her end.  The GENERAL EDWIN D. PATRICK has entered the Panama Canal on her passage to Brownsville and should be followed in two weeks or so by the GENERAL JOHN POPE.  For more images, please click here. UPDATED:  May 29, 2010.

    I hope SAGA ROSE still keeps trading, she’s still a very lovely ship.

    in reading my Travel Weekly Magazine dated May 24, 2010 the Mississippi Queen has indeed been sold by owners Ambassdor Intl for salvage value.

    Good Bye lovely lady you will certainly be missed.
