I remember the Port Caroline very well as she was in New Plymouth on her maiden voyage, January 1969, when I started working in the Port Line office there. The Master was Captain Roger Holmes who incidently passed away a couple of weeks ago. She spent about three weeks loading approx 10,000 tons of meat/dairy/wool/general before sailing to, from memory, Picton. She and her sister Port Chalmers were beautiful ships.
