I have just joined and wanted to find out if any of my old shipmates are out there. I sailed with the union steamship (n.z.)co. in the late 60's & early 70's as electrician on the Koronui, Kaitoke & Ngahere.I left in 73 & settled in Australia. Would love to here from anyone who sailed with me or the union co.

A warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia, Barry.
Good to have you onboard.
We do have ex Union members on SN and I would think that you'll be hearing from old shipmates before long.
