Halandriani frequently renamed

The Halandriani is at anchor waiting for the Federal Danube to complete loading at the CHS #1 grain terminal in Superior. This is the 15th trip here for this ship since 1996 although some of those visits came when it was called the Ocean Leader and the Chios Pride. It was launched in 1981 as the Regent Palm, and was renamed the World Palm, Protoporos III, Crystal B and Ocean Leader prior to becoming the Chios Pride in 1997. Above, the ship is coming into the Duluth harbor in July, 2001 when it was the Chios Pride.
