Humber River (Scrapped under the name 'Vasco da Gama' around 1996)

My father worked on the "Humber River" (made in the netherlands, I think). He wants information and photos on this vessel. There is very limited information on the internet. He was based in based in brisbane (Queensland) and Karatha (Western Australia) (both locations in Australia. He would also like to discuss his other experiences on ships). Any assistance is appreciated.

Welcome to SN,

I am unable to help you but we have a lot of members and maybe some of them can come up with the goods. We are not often stumped.

In the meantime take a look round the site as there is plenty to see here. Maybe your father would be interested in looking around too. There may be some people he knew.

Regards,

Brian

Hello Arie,
I just came across this thread. I'm Charles Odint and worked on the Humber River in Brasil and SA as Chief Electrician. This is all a long time ago, but I am sure I have a bunch of picture somewhere if someone is interested.
Bye
-Charles

Humber River

Hi Bill,

I did about 3 months when the Humber River was dredging for the Airport. Probably the worst vessel I sailed on!!! I was there when the C/E was from some place up North Queensland...were you there then?? When I was there she had just come out of a supposed re-fit in Singapore, the V18 Diesels were stuffed at that stage. I also sailed on the Geopoties 5 for about 6 months in Chili Chup in Indonesia.....Would appreciate any photos you might have of the vessel...so I can add to my 35 or so others for posterity!!!!! You can send them to [email protected] if you wish....Cheers Michael Smith (Senior 2nd Engineer)

One of my brothers worked on the Humber River as well for the Brisbane Airport and at Karatha. He was one of the dredge line operators. He also went to asia and sailed on her to bring her to Brisbane initially. I spent many an enjoyable evening on board when she was docked. Quite a piece of engineering.
