I also saw the stranded merchant, but not so close ... a wonderful place that island!

ho visto anche io il mercantile arenato, ma non così vicino... un posto meraviglioso quell'isola!

Hi all, she was the M/V "Loullia" (Panama, 29.5.1978-26.9.1981) ex "Zschopau" (East Germany, 21.6.1965-29.5.1978) ex "Antonina" (Sweden, July 1952-21.6.1965), built in 1952, stranded in 1981. Ahoy! CybersBase
