T.S.S Maheno

Haven't posted for a while but just wanted to let you all know I have a very large collection of Artefacts from the U.S.S.co's Maheno of 1905 . I began compiling info and photo's on this vessel from about 1992 when i first visited the wreck on Fraser Island , with the Intention of writing a book on the famous liner . This has grown to an obsession and in my research i have meet many people who owned pieces of the ship sold at auction after failed refloating attemps in 1935 . After years of pestering and many $$$$ 's spent , I now own hundreds of pieces from this vessel which i hope to soon set up on permanent public display somewere in the Fraser Coast district. I held a weekend display of my collection in 2010 and over 1000 people showed up ( making the front page of the following mornings local paper ) and proving the disappearing wreck still draws a lot of interest . If anyone is interested let me know and i'll post some pic's

Those are some interesting pieces you have there.. 2 questions, can I see more period photos? and are you still planning the book?
The Maheno has always been one ship I've been quite interested in.

Thanks for sharing!

Good work Mahenoguy, some great relics. How long before Maheno goes the same way as "Cherry Venture" - I heard she's just a hole in the sand now.

Much faith was put into the new Maheno and Marama when they came into the fleet years later after the service of the original two but sadly the downward path was already slippery. Last I heard one of them was ferrying citrus in the Med.

Is it the same as this one (see attached)? The No. 44 is in a shield not a flag.
