POINT FORTIN is classed as a lighter bunkering tanker. The POINT FORTIN would load up with fuel and go out to ships that couldn't get into port to fuel as they were too large, they woule be refuelled by POINT FORTIN at sea.

POINT FORTIN changed owners in 1978 to Alisios Cia Naviera S.A. Panama and was renamed RIO GUAYAS.

RIO GUAYAS is listed in the 1980 Lloyd's Register as being owned by Logistica Maritima C.A. (Logmar) Ecuador. Still listed as being used in the Lloyd's 2010 Register by the same owners.

When POINT FORTIN was built the cargo tanks had no inner hull to prevent pollution from an accident of grounding or collision with another ship; all tankers built now must have an inner hull all round the cargo tank areas.

POINT FORTIN still has her original engine installed.
