Description:
IRON FLINDERS

Australian

(14039 gt/19100 dwt)

Launched 29/1/1959 by BHP, Whyalla (Yard 323); commissioned 13/8/1959, registered Melbourne.

Sold 11/1977 for demolition; left Fremantle 23/1/1978 in tow of tug SUMI MARU (498/1974) for Kaohsiung.

Another Vessel I spent some time on. She was the quietest vessel I have ever sailed on, she was so quiet it was like on a sailing ship, no engine noise anywhere, or very little. It was a long time ago but they are few of those trivial things that have lived on with me.
