I sailed on the Union Rotorua and Rotoiti several times.
Can anyone tell me what happened to them both after they left the Kiwi Coast?

I dont have any of that info. I came ashore and moved to OZ 1970, But I'm sure 3 ex shipmates were on them about the same time as you.Ted Dony and Mike Wilson, AB's, both A few years older than me and John Hartley(the beard)AB about my age. Im now 63.
Do you know of them?

I sailed with John (the baptist) Hartley in 2001 on the rotoiti, he was bosun and a very good all round fellow.

Don,t understand why a new thread has been started again.
This same subject has been dealt with at 4 other occasions in this SAME thread, go to pages 2, 3 and 4 and you can read all about it.
It might be an idea that a moderator puts these postings altogether under the one and only thread.
Unfortunately the search engine is not being used either as that is an excellent tool on this forum.
We now seem to repeat the same over and over again.

Thanks for the info on the demise of the two ro-ro's. I did not know the question had been asked before, as I am not too clued up computer wise yet' but in future will search the site prior to posting.
