The Lake Macquarie on her way in

This vessel is the Lake Macquarie, an ANL vessel that I was on for a while, very easy ship to work on. If I remember rightly, I was never a watch keeper on her...I was a day man come wheelman.

I turned to in the morn and my job was to look after all the running gear like hatch wheels, wire pennants, shackles etc, a real cushy little number with lots of peaceful moments...very enjoyable job.
