Wana Naree

The Wana Naree should be here today to load grain. This ship has only been here twice since it was built in 1980, once in 1999 and again in 2000. Owned by Precious Forests Ltd. in Thailand, it was first called the Seagrand Ace, and then sailed as the Seahorse. Since 1989, it has been called the Wana Naree. On the last trip, in 2000, about half the crew was from India, the other half from Thailand. Photo taken July 21, 2000.
