Just picked up this photo for the first time - she has a BHP funnel but I think the photo might be April/May 1980. She came into layup in Hobart as AFP Pty.Ltd's "Myarra" at the end of March 1979 and was taken on bareboat charter by BHP at the beginning of May 1980 and renamed "Iron Myarra" the following month. I think this might be just before her departure Hobart on her bareboat charter to BHP, with their funnel livery.

Bill - have just found your photo of her posted on 28 April 2006 which shows her with AFP's "black duck" logo still on her funnel. I think she acquired the BHP funnel livery maybe only a day or two prior to her departure Hobart.

Thanks Mike, some of my slide collection date system leaves a lot to be desired. I should have picked up the error as I have another photo of her with the black duck logo on the funnel and that was taken about 01 Jan 1980 as the SYD-HBA mothership is in the foreground. Thanks once again.....Cheers.....Bill
