MV Mee May

I see we visited Mee May (IMO: 7015274) on 13 May 1989, at the time she was owned by Saturn Navigation Company, Limassol, and was operated by MSC. She was a very interesting ship, built as Erlangen in 1970, as a multipurpose vessel, she was modernised in 1979 at Bremen Vulkan yard as a full container ship. In effect each of the ships involved had a new and longer midbody, while retaining the bow section and the stern section, including the accommodation and machinery space and the original engine. Apparently they were not good seaboats in bad weather. She went to the breakers in 2009.
(Sisters were Leverkusen, Ludwigshafen and Hoechst)
