Ever Prosperity I was a Liberty ship cargo vessel, based in Monrovia, Liberia. In 1965, she was wrecked on the West Coast barrier reef of New Caledonia. In 1970, her sister ship, who belonged to the same ship-owner, had been given the same name and the same Korean captain, met with the same destiny, just a few miles away from the first wreck.
Twin ships sunk by the same captain in the same place? Twin brother captains would have made this true story even more symmetrically unreal. Head-on collision would have been even better. But it’s pretty amazing as it is. Thank you, Colin, for sharing this!
As with the Costa Concordia story, reality is sometimes even more incredible than fiction…
