Question

I often wonder what happened to the BULKNES, a sister of BLIDNES. She was engaged in trade between Gladstone (Aust) and Bluff (NZ) carrying bulk alumina from 1974 till about 1983 when she was replaced by TNT ALLTRANS.

Thank you Tanker, it is a brilliant photo. I see that her derricks were not "put back" after she left NZ/Aust waters. They were removed to increase her carrying capacity by 500 tons.
