Great shots of the Brasilia Star and the Rockhampton Star Torrens. They appear to be "sister ships" with their long raised foredecks.??? They have been kept in great nick too, very impressive looking ships.Cheers. Paul

You're posting a lot of Newhaven regulars Torrens. Nice to see them at 'the other end of the line' for a change!
Rockhampton Star once famously decided to misbehave under tow into Newhaven, wedging herself diagonally across the harbour entrance and demolishing a small lighthouse with her bow. Blocked the harbour for several hours before being pulled free.
