Greetings to all and especially to those who are still around to remember the days of bountiful New Zealand ships and plenty of jobs on the kiwi coast. Question, any body have any idea as to when the seaman's accommodation on the Karu was moved from the sharp end to the stern? I remember going aboard the Karu in Wellington in 1955 with the seaman living up front. I have found an excellent photo of the Karu prior to the change crossing the bar at Westport.

Dixon, in my time the Karu was the dread ship on the coast, for engineers anyway and accomodation anywhere was less that the other Union co vessels.
I was berthed near her many times in the late 50's and never noticed any change or how the accomodation was shared .
I hope that an ex crew member can help you .
