Hi Bob,
I used to be in and out of Tauranga regular in the late 50s early 60s, As Stillwaters said, Tauranga half load them the Mount to top up, I have some pics somewhere of loading there on the Kurow and the Waipori among others. A man was killed when the lunch whistle went and they had a load of timber half way down, they raced the winches and the load hit a billet on the floor of the hold and it spun across the hold hit him as he was climbing the ladder.
Any chance that you could put a pic of the modern Tauranga on here?
Cheers Tugger
