It was hard to read the name at first, for rust covered the lettering. But I stared hard, and it was worth the effort:

a crude oil tanker named Compassion.

It was such a good name that it survived two company changes. It was Stena Compassion until 2010, then Newlead Compassion until 2012. It is currently owned by BW Maritime (Singapore). Flag: Bermuda, homeport: Hamilton.

The company also owns a tanker named Compass. Un-ION-ized.

Tanker Compassion
Built: 2006 by Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Group
Length: 748 ft. (228 m)
Beam: 105 ft. (32 m)
Draft: 37.4 ft. (11.4 m)

What good karma to be up in the bridge, high on Compassion.
