I only did the one trip on her 1977-'78. They were great wee ships when they were steam and i served on all six of the Encounter Bay class as steam until they started to re-engine them early 80's but they kept the Flinders Bay as steam presumably for the engineer's steam ticket. They all went to scrap late '90's.
