This bulk carrier was built in Japan and entered service in November of 1981 as (a) Orion Maru. In 1985 she was sold and renamed (b) Sanggumay however this name lasted less than two years. In May of 1987 she was renamed (c) Mariposa and in March of 1988 she was again renamed, this time (d) El Hadjar. When this picture was added to the archives she still sailed under this name and she flew the flag of Algeria.
