Ships and Harbours
No: 19033   Contributor: Kevin Harrison   Year: 1976   Manufacturer: Unknown   Country: Australia
"M/V.Rah" laid up at Launceston, Tas. Aust.

I think that I took the photo sometime in 1976. She was tied up at Kings Wharf, Launceston, Tasmania, Australia. Rah was originally purchased by the Tasmanian Transport Commission to replace their "M/V.Straitsman" which capsized in the River Yarra, Melbourne in 1974. When Straitsman came back into service after being repaired in Launceston, Rah was then laid up and later put up for sale.
Kindest Regards,
Kevin Harrison.
