On April 11, 2008, I took this photo of lube tanker Manhasset.  I don’t believe I’ve posted this photo before.  I did post two others here.

The set below shows the same vessel a bit over 11 years later, with a crane added near the bow and an extended supply shelter forward of the superstructure.

Manhasset has been renamed Louis C.  Note the operator’s seat to the port side of the crane.

 

She came into the dock to self-load a spud,

hidden from my vantage point.

Lube tanker to small crane ship . . .   is quite the transformation.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who published more photos of this 1958 Pascagoula-built vessel here.
