When I was on the Waimea on the South Island trade the Captain was Roy Gower and he and the mate and myself went home to Sydney from Port Kembla and the ship had to be shifted into the inner harbour and the Port Kembla pilot used the anchor and the crown of the anchor fractured.The USSCo office were not happy but could not do anything about it as they would not pay ship keeping in the weekends.I think the year was 1967 or 1968
