I would appreciate further information on these two vessels, year of build etc etc, I am a little confused about them, brain cells diminishing minute by minute, the more I think about them the more confused I get.
Thanks guys what blew me off course was the incorrect name for the Athenic, when she was listed as the Athenia it confused my grey matter. Seen that Shipmate 17 has corrected the name it also corrected my brain cells, similar to compass adjusting I suppose.
looks like the favourite SSA berth in Sydney - 1a and 1b Darling Harbour - easy run ashore to the rocks area. Fairly unusual to see two berthed together as they both have four lifeboats - must have been when they were both on liner runs and carrying a full load of pax. Thanks for posting of great interest to all us old SSA fogies!
