The black and white Meridian photos above were taken in 1974 in front of St. Cruz upon arrival from Germany. In 1973 I rebuilt this ship myself, converting it from a German KFK cutter into the ship you can see on the photos. The local mafia sold the ship to a third party in Los Christianos before I got the chance to recover her.
