The Sea Witch was originally built as a bulk carrier, but was converted to a container ship before delivery. I surveyed a sister ship, the SS Argonaught which was also damaged by a fire while loading containers in Egypt.

The bow section of the Sea Witch sat in the Brooklyn Navy Yard for years. I believe it was removed about 1985 or so. You could see the giant notch cut out of the bow where it locked into the Brussels and all the schorching from the fire.
