Mendoza by T. Diedrich
       She was built at Sevilla by the Empresa Nacional Elcano shipyard as Astene, being delivered in 1964 to Naviera de Castilla as Mendoza. In 1969 she was bought by Letasa, keeping the name, but only four years later she was sold to Protostatis Cia. Naviera being renamed Agelos Raphael.
       On 06/11/1976 she was struck by the Pakistani vessel Rupsa at Gulf of Saint Lawrence, when leaving Toledo loaded with grain bound to Leith. She was towed to Quebec to be repaired and after more than a month of repair when leaving the shipyard she ran on the opposite shore to Quebec on rocky bottom, due to the towing line breakage. The damage was so extensive that she was declared a total loss. In July/1978 she was towed to Browsville to be scrapped.
