The 1968-built, 27,755 dwt, bulk carrier Nestor is seen in this photograph while she was departing Vancouver harbour during June of 1976. She sailed originally as Archontas and was renamed Nestor in 1973. On February 3rd, 1985 a fire broke out in her aft section which later seriously damaged her accomodations while she was discharging at Santos, Brazil. It was determined that she was damaged beyond repair and was subsequently sold for scrapping in Paranagua. She arrived at the Guaira Shipyard in Brazil on July 27th, 1985 where she was later dismantled. Photograph by Ray Thorsteinson
