I have the pictures of her final arrival in UK inbound from NZ when the old man I believd rigged a makeshift sail to counter the fact that she only had one engine.

I think you may be thinking of the wrong ship. Rakaia rigged jury sail on a voyage from New York to Liverpool in 1957. I was a cadet on board at the time. I later joined Otaio for her maiden voyage.
