Default Unidentified at barbados

Can someone please identify this coaster, photographed off Bridgetown, Barbados in July 1981 ? The name appears to have five letters. Thank you.

Dear Hans A,
Thanks again. The ship in my picture definitely matches AFIENA but she was apparently called TIKERAK in 1981 and (using a magnifying glass) the name does not seem to match that. I wonder however if it could be the AFIENA's sistership KATE which had by then been renamed KATE 1, since that seems a good match. Any comments please ? In any case I greatly appreciate your kind help in identifying me to identify her,
MauriceJ.

Maurice - I think favouring the KATE 1 rather than the TIKERAK is more likely a positive identification. A friend of mine sent me a scanned image of KATE 1 in the Caribbean and she has the same framework aft for a canopy for protection from the weather elements. I cannot find a photograph of the TIKERAK with a similar set up. Hope this helps. Leslie
