The Sanko Blossom is another Aframax ship flying under the flag of Panama and is part of the Sanko Line Fleet.

From the flickr page, one reader reports:

This ship is around 800 x 135 feet and comes into Houston with up to 45 feet of draft. Believe it or not, in addition to making independent trips between ports, these ships are used to “lighter” crude oil from much larger ships that are too big to enter ports.

Apparently, people think the Sanko Blossom is “fat.”
