If my memory serves me right George H Evans was anchored at Bell Bay Tasmania in the early 60s > something to do with providing power to local industry??

I watched the George H Evans under tow leaveing the Tamar river in the 60's it
was supplying much needed power to Tasmania and it was used for accommodation
for hydro workers (now we inport -export power so the politicians say )I dont know what we do

have a good day
