  1. Looking for answers to following questions —

    1) Do you have record of Regina ever needing repairs for damage to hull?

    2) Do you have complete manifest available for her final run? If so, how could I obtain a copy?

    • I have no idea on either question but there could be someone to answer. I would post the question in the information search section of It’s amazing how many people have all kinds of details on vessel history.
