RANGITATA

RANGITATA

The visible part of the ship's name is RANGI and after ample considerations I feel she must be the RANGITATA owned by NZSCo.

A very handsome liner! It must have been a pleasant voyage through the Caribbean and down to New Zealand. I'd have spent a lot of deck chair-time on the very wide Boat Deck...

Lovely photo.

In my view this is Gatun Locks, i.e. on the Atlantic side of the Canal and at this point in time the ship is heading West for the Pacific and New Zealand. You can see that the water level in the Lock is noticeably higher than outside.

One of three sisters (Rangitata, Rangitane, Rangitiki) all completed 1929. Interesting detailed history of the trio here:
