Sailed on her in both guises - as gearless bulkcarrier "Selwyn Range" (Coal from Newcastle to Karachi returning via Christmas Island for phosphate to Fremantle and Esperance) and several swings after she had the self-discharge middle bit installed in Nagasaki (I think) and became "River Torrens". Mainly cement from Adelaide to Brisbane but also coal, grain and salt all round Aussie coast and NZ. Good job both times. Is she still around?
