Venture at Miramar wharf

Should probably be in the 'Special service' category, as in this pic she was converted from the Dutch coaster 'Manuia' into a 1930's-looking ship for the movie 'King Kong'. Quite a dramatic change.

These days she looks very sad now that all the movie props have been stripped off her and she is likely to be scuttled at some stage in the future.
