Dutch ship "Boskoop" manifests for 1937/38 #germany #latinamerica

I am fairly certain my father, Herbert Liffmann, and his siblings were aboard the Boskoop, a mixed cargo vessel, that sailed from Europe to the west coast of South America in the 1930s. I am not certain where they embarked but suspect, The Netherlands, since they lived close to the border in the area of Monchengladbach. They emigrated to Cali, Colombia by way of Buenaventura. I have tried contacting possible Dutch and Colombian sources but to no avail. The best I have done so far is access the Panama Canal Records and have four transits for the ship during those two years. Any suggestions? Much appreciated. Mike
