M.V. Atlantic Trader1947Mahone Bay Shipbuilding Ltd.Built for Atlantic Freighting Co. Ltd. And Launched June 21, 1947 Via Facebook: "I remember one Summer day when she arrived in my home village with a circus complete with exotic animals such as elephant and zebra. I was perhaps12 years old, quite a happening. This was a very large double-ender, 160 feet, later CARLISLE BAY. Also traded in Québec. This ship had an accident somewhere in the Caribbean and had to be partially rebuild. That is when they changed her name. She traded a few years on the St Laurent before being wrecked by fire about 1960."View a photo of this ship here: 6
