The Chrisoula K began life as the 3,720 or 3,807 GRT Cargo Ship Dora Oldendorff
In late August 1981, the Chrisoula K got underway from Italy with a cargo of floor tiles destined for Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The ship, under the command of Captain Kanellis, made safe passage across the Mediterranean Sea, transit through the Suez Canal, and navigated through the narrow confines of the Straits of Suez. One source states that Captain Kanellis was on the bridge for the entire passage from Italy up to this point and then turned the helm over to another officer in order to retire for some well-earned rest. True or not, the ship continued on its passage south, steaming at full speed, when it struck the northeast corner of Sha’ab Abu Nuhas.
