Port Sydney/Ocean Monarch

I saailed in Port Sydney for three years,she was a fine ship then(1960's) and her conversion was well done as she and her sister are still good looking in their modern guise.Port Sydney had Doxford engines,still going strong in the Ocean Monarch over 50 years since building. I saw her and went aboard when she was Daphne and although some original equipment was still evident(deck crane and windlass and possibly some of the lifeboats) not much of the original ship was evident.
