Rio Lima versus Leone III

Rio Lima was a ship built in 1952 on the shipyard of  Viana do Castelo as a motor ship destinated to the fishing with long-line in the banks of Newfoundland. Later in 1962  it was transformed and adapted to a fishing-vessel prepared to catch cod fish  by two methods: - fishing-nets and trawling-nets(seine nets).

 

 

Leone III - Ex. Rio Lima landed in Comercial Dock of Viana Harbour

 

Main characteristics of m/v "Rio Lima":

Gross tonnage: 1395 tons

Net tonnage : 638 Tons

Length over all : 67,12 mts

Breath: 11,06 mts

Engine Power : 1261 BHP - 275 RPM

Type of engine : N. V. Verkspoor - 1951

In 1988 she change the name to Leone III with Panamá flag until 1995.

During her long life she cross the seas  of Newfoundland, Groenland, Norway, Sierra Leone and South Africa using diferent arts of fishing for catch diferent kinds of fishing.

I remember one trip she made to the seas of Sierra Leone(1988?), comanded by  Captain João Amorim Carvalho, with about 500 tons of special and gross fish, catched on the virgin shoals of Sierra Leone.

 

 

On the last trip she made in Norway, she towed the other trawler named "Leone", ex." Santa Maria Madalena" that had an accident with fire on board, from Norway to Viana do Castelo.

After that she was transformed into scrap.
