Good to see the photo M/V.Rah, she was built in Finland and was bought by the Tasmanian Transport Commission to replace M/V.Straitsman which overturned in the River Yarra, Melbourne and after Straitsman was repaired in Launceston, Tasmania, Rah was laid up and was up for sale. I sailed on Rah as A/B. in that year that your photo was taken in Melbourne.
Kindest Regards,
Kevin Harrison.
