Hi Allan,

Hi Marc

I think Otiao was their cadet training ship.........couldn't agree more about the colours, I've also got her with a black hull and blue funnel and that doesn't look much better either.

I like your Friday classic choices. An original idea which the older (and younger..) generation of ship lovers like me will appreciate.
However she looked better in New Zealand Shipping colors. If I remember right, she was their cadet training ship.
