9 Days and almost sinking.

Most of the posts are about going to NZ or Aust. Did the Cook only make 1 trip to Canada? As I remember the trip it was April 1954. When we were almost half way it sprang a leak. The Captain decided to keep going and eventually they used 6 bilge pumps to keep us from sinking. It took us 9 days to reach Montreal. Does anyone else remember the voyage.

Judging by this thread (post #15), she was in Montreal in March/April 1955:

It may have been the Captain Cook's last trip to Canada but not her last at sea as I saw her in Wellington about 1960/61. The Dominion Monarch was alongside for her final voyage when the "D.M.'s" crew had the "D.M.'s Ball" there before returning home. As is well known, those two ships were not allowed alongside together due to history.

She was also there in mid-September 1955.

From book i have Emigrant Ships by Peter Plowman he says Captain Cook was chartered by Donaldson Line to do seven return voyages between Glasgow and Montreal from 20 April till 11the September 1955 but the results were disappointing and Captain Cook was returned to the New Zealand emigrant trade. So looks like September 1955 was last time there as samsette also mentioned.
