Yes. I think this is her.

Based on your photos it certainly appears so - white stripe above, windows below and paint below center window.

Just under that lower set of windows on the right is her name, KASSEL. Very cool!

I still cannot make out the name, but the size and placement are right.

This is how I do it. Highlight entire camera view and ctrl-c. Go to MS Word and paste. Copy again and open MS Paint. Save as jpg. Then upload.

Thanks for all your help. I'll check back in tomorrow to see whether you have had any luck coming up with the schedule for LA/Long Beach.

I am sure that monster ship was the Cougar Ace. Read this:

"BEWARE - Cougar Ace Mazdas
On Tuesday September 12, 2006, the Cougar Ace finally made it to the Port of Portland (Oregon) after having rolled 60-degrees in the Pacific on July 23 while shifting ballast. Operator error, you see.

The Cougar Ace, owned by Japan's Mitsui OSK and flying the Singapore flag, is a gargantuan car carrier. On its fateful voyage, it was carrying about 4,800cars. Most of these cars were Mazda3s and Mazda CX-7s. There were a few RX-8 and MX-5 Miatas on board as well. The Mazda3 is Mazda's hottest model at the moment and the newly-introduced CX-7 SUV is just beginning to catch on.

While the ship did not sink, and the vehicles were lashed to the deck, the 60-degree list made a shake-and-bake bag out of the fourteen decks on which the cars were strapped.

Mazda says that the cars will be evaluated for damage. Our guess is that the condition of vehicles in transit will range from totalled to being saleable units. The cars won't be sold as new, but will be repaired if possible and carry full new car warranties. "

Here is a hi-res shot of the back of her. She has the same back doors as the Cougar Ace.

There does not appear to be much pride of ownership visible with the Cougar Ace.

Interesting! I never thought to take a look at night, but you are right.
