She entered service in 1977 as Anderso but she was renamed Chase Three soon after. Early in 1979 she reverted to the name Anderso and sailed as such until 1986. At that timke she became Star Forest for a few months before the name Forest Island was applied. Under this name she made several visits to the Great Lakes. In 1988 she was sold and renamed Star Castor and two years later she became Star Castor, a name that she would carry for the reminder of her career. In July of 2001 she reached the end of her travels when she arrived in Xinhui, China to be dismantled.
