This ship, built in 1949, was one of the ill-fated 30,000 dwt Bulkpetrol class,
Her original name was Bulkoceanic, dwt 30,016.
This hull failure is very similiar to the Keo, lost in the same month,
except most of the crew was saved.
Could have been welding failure, or corrosion.
More likely welding.
When the Bulkpetrol was built in 1948, she was the largest tanker
ever built, and all welded ships were still a novelty.
We need Class records.
