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.

UAE cargo ship 'Al Qasim' of 1956

Sharjah-registered cargo ship "Al Qasim" (6,920 tons gross, built 1956 by A/S Nakskov Skibsvaerft, Denmark & owned by Pan Arabian Sealine Ltd.) at anchor off Muscat, March 1976. She was built as "Nordglimt" for D/S Norden A/S of Copenhagen; sold 1974 to Rasheed Shipping corp., Monrovia, renamed "Rasheed" (or "Al Rasheed"?); bought early 1976 by Pan Arabian but sold later the same year to Maldives Shipping Ltd. & renamed "Maldive Navigator". I can find no details of her fate.
