I have asked this before - which NZ port causes this very distinctive paint damage which is visible in many photographs of ships around NZ waters - my quess is Napier with all the ranging up and down, but I suppose their are other candidates.Thanks for a great set of Port Line ships

My guess is the hull is spot primed as they worked on all the conference line ships around the coast and they all generally sailed in excellent condition.

For example she will probably berth starboard side so the port side can be finished. The other side no doubt is already complete.

I've got another question: why did some of the Port Line ships, such as the Port Auckland above, have shorter accomodation blocks, and others, such as the Port Sydney, have longer accomodation blocks, and the bridge one deck lower? Where they intended for different ports of call, different cargoes or more passgengers?
