NOTES: despite an extensive search the only other reference I can find to this boat is in Trevor Hamilton Associates’ Agricultural study “Agricultural Sector Services Marketing Component” for the Bahamas government in October 1989. Nowhere else in the ship directories or databases or image repositories can I find more about this enigmatic vessel. At the same time, Hamilton’s study is otherwise reliable and thorough and so we cannot ignore the reference altogether.
