She was an Australian owned and manned vessel, now owned in Canada and manned with Ukranians. Still running on the Aussie coast. Typical of modern F.O.C.s.

Originally gearless bulk carrier "Selwyn Range" (built Newcastle, NSW ... State Dockyard I think). Converted to self discharging bulk carrier "River Torrens" in Japan (front and back ends retained and "self discharging cargo module" inserted in between). Carried cement, grain, salt and other bulk cargoes, some more successful than others (salt solidified in the hold once and had to be jack hammered free).
