Suspicions Confirmed

The Sammi Crystal won't be back.

I finally found an article in the online version of the Otago Daily Times (on New Zealand's South Island) that confirmed her fate.

Sold to a Chinese shipbreaker for about $2.9 million.

I thought the article was particularly interesting in that it noted the passing of the ship because it holds the record for the most port visits there of any bulker.

Another snippet of an article that I couldn't read the entirety of indicated that the transaction occurred (or was announced) on May 17 of this year. Interesting coincidence, as that's my birthday.
