Laiva oli rakennettu samassa kylässä. Ulos telakalta 27.5.1980. Kanadan lipun alla seilasi. 2005 nimeksi tuli MADONNA. Laivan tarina päättyi Alangissa 16.2.2007.

Shipsnostalgiaan kun kuvan laitoin niin "irvingman" kommentoi:
The Irving Eskimo was laid up for about 9 months here at "dock 4" in Courtney Bay, 1982.

Those on board thought it would be a good way to pass the time tackling the Continuous Machinery Survey items. All very well until I joined as 2nd Engineer 5 years later and found that I had about 3 years survey work to complete in 3 months!
