The 'What's New' Page
By clicking on the 'Sun Ship' icon for a specific line item description, you will be taken directly to that site addition / update. 'What's New' items will be removed from this 'page' within a period of approx. 6 months after addition. Access will then be possible via the normal 'Sun Ship Selections' page.
Note: I Wish to thank Butch Kates 'Jr' for use of his idea for using the 'What's New' page concept for making it easier for visitors to check out new additions and updates.  Please visit his Sun Oil Marine Department' website at
