Default Alexander mackenzie

Today in History has the ALEXANDER MACKENZIE being sold in 1952 to Mississippi Valley Barge Line. Here are a few shots of her:
Note in the first shot her homeport of Wilmington Delaware. Obviously her company was incorporated there for tax and financial reasons, but she didn't operate out of there of course. This is seen quite often on the river. For ocean traffic, they license under what is known as a 'flag of convenience', for the same purposes. Liberia, Panama, Cyprus, Singapore, Malta, Bahamas, Vanuatu are some of the most popular flags of convenience.
