M/V Lady Kathreina serving Mangrove Cay, Fresh Creek Andros under Capt. King

Bow detail of M/V Lady Kathreina taken on April 22 2015 in the rain – this is the first time the author had come across this ship. Photo from author’s collection.

NOTES: Initially I believed that the Lady Kathreina replaced the sunken Lady D., however this appears not to be the case since the Kathreina was listed as serving Andros in the spring of 2014, before the Lady D. sank. 
It was impossible to get the 100% length of the ship in this frame, so see bow detail above.
