Noticed this article for auction from Union Rotoiti on this website.

also comments as follows : Candlewick bedspread from the vessel Union Rotoiti.This is of single bed size.The ships name is incorporated into the candlewick.There is a small hole the size of a 10 cent in one corner.Excellent condition considering the age.These were purpose made for the vessel in 1976.Just for info,as of last week the ship was on a beach in Bangladesh being turned into razor blades. Can anyone confirm if this sad bit of news is true.. Maurie
