Several members including myself on SN sailed on Lochnagar before she was converted into a Cable Layer. I sailed again on her several years ago since her conversion into a cable layer on the Pampos Basin in Brasil

Julio, I've been trying to get a photo of the Sunrise 2000 for a long time.
I worked on her for over two years when she first arrived (2/eng)
OBRIGADO!!

Can anyone recall the cable laying ship that operated in New Zealand waters probably pre and post WW2. The name "Matai" rings a bell.
She was white hulled and fitted with a cable handling bow sprit.
