It seems the old Auckland bunker barge Tolema is to depart tomorrow morning. the tugs Arataki (IMO 6929844) and Sea Pelican (IMO 8950873) are alongside her now. She is a single hulled bunker barge so my guess is she is going for scrap.

Great to think our old Timaru tug Arataki (ex Aorangi) is right now back in Auckland for the moment almost right where she was built some 44 years ago..with a lick of paint and still looking good I presume. Let's hope she's not on a one-way passage to the scrap yard where the barge might be headed!

Any pictures of her in Auckland much appreciated..

SB,

Just downloaded 2 photos of Aorangi which I have scanned. My captions say it was taken in 1972 and would be returning to harbour after taking out the Port Pirie.

Super photos and in good colour too! Any idea who took them? It's quite a high aspect view so I wonder what the photographer was on..maybe a inbound ship? Going around the end of the break water their is nothing to climb on to get this angle so it must have been taken off another vessel.

Simon,
Took the photos myself from the Auckland Star (Blue Star Line) when I was a 4th Engineer. Camera used was a Pentax Spotmatic II, slide quite dirty but software that came with Nikon LS4000 scanner did a good job of cleaning it up.

Cheers,

Dave G.

Dave,

Super job all around. Fine effort. At that time (1972) I was only 2 and I doubt I didn't even know what a tug boat was! Appreciate you jumping onboard and uploading these great pics. They really add to our small collection of reference material we have for this tug.

I guess you were arriving to load frozen meat for the UK? I can remember many Blue Star reefers at Timaru during the very very late 70's (when we use to visit the port with my grandfather) and into the 80's. Was quite a busy period back then.

Any more shots at Timaru in the early days appreciated as well. Many thanks once again.

Simon B

Following the sale and charter back of all the "Bahia" class vessels operated by Hamburg-Sud on the Trident Service, Bahia Castillo is to be renamed Spirit of Shanghai and Bahia Negra will be renamed Spirit of Sydney. No doubt the others will also be similarly renamed.

MSC appear to be phasing out the Mare Phoenicium and Mare Arcticum on the Capricorn Service and their February slots are being advertised as TBA
