My own cloudy memory tells me there were pontoons in the tween decks (upper and lower or just one set?) in 1 and 5 but single pull covers in 2,3, and 4? It'd be great to get some plans to look at.

Thanks Mike

Your memory is better than mine. I definitely remember the pontoons, but also rigging wires to open tween decks in 3 and 4. Did she have upper and lower tween decks in all five holds?...

Thanks for those latest images. In the absence of a correct date that he was in her, and hull colour-change, I think I will ask for blue hull with blue HN funnel.

Thanks Pilot mac. I'm going to have to take a punt on the hull colour. I think he would have joined his first ship in 1965 or 1966 (he is 70 now) so it would be quite likely to have been either black...

How could that ship still be afloat in 2007? I thought I had chipped all the steel off her with a chipping hammer in 1982.

A fun time though. Many good memories of the grain run out of Timaru....
