Non-the-less Bank Boats were always great looking ships and no matter where you were in the world you were never surprised to see one.

Like the rest of us I'm old now but my heart is still back there in the 50's and 60's.
Truly the golden era Bill no wars to fight just tramping around in great ships with great mates oh for one more trick at the wheel sailing into Kobe, nearly said sailing out of Kobe but who would want to be sailing out of any of the great ports we visited , Santos , Rio , Auckland ,oh no I better not start
