Charons a bit of a strange name for a ship, aint it? An ill omen even. As I recall (from my schooldays) Charon was the blue jacket/vessel that transported souls across the River Styx to Hades.
Is that right?

Broome! Ah, the Port of Pearls (as it's known now). I'm sure I still have a polo shirt from the Roebuck Hotel somewhere......
Proper mad max country, all the soil was that rich brown/red colour. The main industry now seems to be Pearls, Cattle and tourists.
When I was last there in 2002, there was only the one wooden jetty, and that was used for the Cattle ships, cruise ships and the tankers.
The berth doesn't dry out now, was there perhaps an older pier?
