Comments:
Does Anyone Know What Happend To The St Ola III, Also Is That The Bow Of St Ola IV At The Left, Did They Both Sail Under The Same Name During The Changeover Period?

If Andrew thinks that looks like the bow of a ship, tell him never to take up boat-building.

After 1992 when St Ola 3 was withdrawn she was renamed 'Cecila' and ran on charter between Denmark and Sweden for a short period. She was again renamed in 1993 the 'Odigitria' and later sold to the Chinese Goverment.
