Donald Nicholson from Fort Myers, Florida kindly sent me the above photo of a freighter called the SS Nestos.
This isn’t the same SS Nestos that is locally known as The Greek, the boat or more accurately, what’s left of it, lies in the sand off Hoylake. In this post from a couple of years ago, we discussed the wreck of the SS Nestos and another, unidentified wreck that Vaughan Williams photographed. Donald says of the other SS Nestos:
“The SS NESTOS I was interested in is pictured in the attached picture. The photo was taken as the ship entered Rotterdam harbour in 1951. The photo was taken by A. den Haan fotograaf, Rotterdam, NL. My friend Theo Palis sailed on her at this time. I understand that she was originally the SS Mary Lyon 09095.43 1943 WSA, ( Cosmopolitan Shpg.Co, NY.) and was a Liberty ship during WWII, and later was purchased by Greek companyTheofano Maritime Co. She sunk in Hudson Strait at 63.39N 77020W.”
