Napier is on the East Coast of the North Island in New Zealand. The funnel is that of Federated Fruit Carriers, a company I believe was formed jointly between Seatrade and Nissui. The funnel is based on that of Nissui, with the red circles replaced with the red "F". Ships operated by this company are normally regular visitors between January and April when they call to load squash for Japan. I think I would prefer to have seen the Star Reefers funnel myself.

Excellent shot, though where is Napier? I took a pic of her over the summer in Bridgeport,CT, and she had a different paint scheme then that of what your pic shows, im not sure which one i like more though. any way great pic, a couple of mine of her were a bit blurred.
