Built in 1954 by John Brown 7 Co 10,936 GRT 2 x 12 cyl Sulzer sgl reduction geared- magnectic coupled. 16 kts; Great help when manouvering.

The picture by Duncan Haws in his paper back depicts her as only having 5 hatches. When I know for a fact after sailing on her for over a year she had six!! Yet he shows her sister ship the Otaki with six!! Maybe he had a bad pint of Wellington bitter that day.

Having problems decreasing size of picture to fit any one help?

If for whatever reason, you can't get it to fit with your post, place it in the Photo Gallery.
