I sailed on the Port Melbourne in the 1960's and without a doubt, it was the most miserable time I have ever spent on a ship. I walked off the ship (jumped ship) in NZ in 1966 , out of desperation. I eventually returned to the UK in 1970 after having spent four years working and travelling around Australia and New Zealand.
I continued sailing with other shipping companies and had my first C/E job in 1976.
I look back on this period with mixed feelings - my time with Port Line.
