|SIR FREDERIK SAMSON pilot boat at Poro on 08 oct 1994.
Poro is one of the nickel mines on the east coast of New Caledonia. Bulkers have to proceed in the lagoon to access to the anchorages. When they leave full loaded, lagoon is like a minefield for vessels with about 15 m draft and pilot is here absolutery necessary.
I remember that this boat had been bough in Australia.
