The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Unknown beached ship

I don't know the story of this vessel.
She is on the beach, in the Gulf of Mexico, near Ciudad del Carmen, in the State of Campeche.

That's one of the "Mini" coastertype ordered in the 70ty years by Livanos, those horrible deep loaded barge-type buckets you could find all of the Caribbean. Absolutely horrible accommodations and very low powered, so when you saw them in ballasted conditions, they could hardly make it against the tradewinds.
