  6. Port Nicholson (III) 1962 at Auckland

    What a massive-looking ship with great lines. I think this was taken in Auckland Harbour. About to be overtaken by containerism, and only lasted 19 years accordingly. Port Nicholson (III) Built: 1962 Harland and Wolff, Belfast Tonnage: 13,847gt Owners: Port Line 1979: Broken up, Kaohsiung.
  7. Port Nicholson (II) 1919 at Auckland

    Photo of 'Port Nicholson' (II) taken at Auckland c.1930's, in standard Port Line livery by then, instead of the previous dull grey overall. M.Bond was a well-known ship photographer in Auckland from c.1930 to c.1960(anyone know anything about him?). Port Nicholson (II) Built: 1919 Hawthorn...
  8. Manuia

    Manuia (ex Auriga) at Auckland, 31.12.2001. Couldn't believe my eyes when a real live Dutch coaster turned up at Auckland. I think she was in the process of being converted into some sort of fishing boat, but that is to ignominious to put in the 'fishing boat' category. Check the pic of...

  11. Remuera (I) at Auckland

    Part of an album of Auckland shipping taken in the 1930's. I think it's Remuera after her 1920 refit and modification. Remuera Built: 1911 Wm Denny and Bros, Dumbarton Tonnage: 11,445grt Owners: NZ Shipping Co 1940: Sunk by German torpedo bombers off NE coast of Scotland, 26.8.1940.
  12. Ruahine (II)

    Ruahine (II)--I think--at Auckland. Postcard says: 'Sectional view of Waterfront, Auckland. Pro. 1.1.12, W.B. and Co, Auckland.' If 1.1.12 is a date, then it must be Ruahine. Ruahine Built: 1909 Wm Denny and Bros, Dumbarton Tonnage: 10,832grt Owners: NZ Shipping Co 1938: Converted to cargo...
  13. Athenic (II)

    Athenic at Auckland, looks like post 1965 by the lack of extra lifeboats, and by which time she was cargo only. Athenic Built: 1947 Harland and Wolff, Belfast tonnage: 15,182grt Owners: Shaw Savill and Albion Co 1969: Broken up Kaohsiung.

  18. Pukeko (II) at Auckland

    Pukeko anchored at Auckland c.1970's. Looks like some sort of containers on deck--any comments Dave/Duncan? The last Richardson coaster to be built--sturdy, fine lines. Pukeko Built: 1961 J.Lamont, Port Glasgow Tonnage: 1,020grt Owners: Richardson and Co, Napier 1975: Sirdhana Fortune...
