Yes Tropic, i agree, she was short lived on the Australian Coast, i see from in the recent pics Jebsen has replaced the enclosed cargo boom with an open type.
Some cargoes were a problem Gypsum and Salt were the worst two i remember, hang ups and sticking cargo made discharge a problem, coal, grain, fertilizer etc were a dream, just crack the gate open and it would flow beautifully.

Nice one Craig. CSL could probably use a vessel of her size on the coast, if the CSL MELBOURNE was "too big" for the available cargoes.

Cheers,
tropic

I sailed on it in 1990 and 1991 and she had the best engine room that I have ever worked in. The generators were each in their own room and this made the engine room nice and quiet in port when we were working on the main engine. The fuel oil and lube oil purifiers were in a separate room on the starboard side of the engine room. It was designed by engineers for engineers. We were carrying all sorts of experimental cargoes back then, with numerous handling problems. The discharge system kept us busy and it was the only drawback of working on it.

I've just recently scanned a few shots of her around Tauranga. Shes a fine looking vessel and still in service with her conveyor belt!
