Continuing the 'A's this week is the Agapenor, built in 1947 by Scotts of Greenock.  She was a cargo ship for the Blue Funnel line who became trapped in the Suez Canal during the six day war between Egypt & Isreal in 1967.  She remained in the Great Bitter Lake along with 13 other trapped ships until the canal reopened in 1975.  After that she was sold to Greek owners who had her refitted and returned to service.
