…and why is she here?
After establishing our Port as ….
a “one stop shop” for ship / vessels / rigs repairs/surveys…..
the Nelson Mail reports ….
As you can see in the upper centre right of this photo from …..
Port Nelsons webcam Sunday lunchtime, they are working to a deadline already alright.
After tweeting about it earlier, a real side benefit of SOC MED showed itself right away,
…the ability for locals to discuss and be informed. When queried about Nelson having a regular Wellington to Nelson service I initially got confused and answered back with Bluebridge lines “Straitsman”, but in fact it was the Kent.
I must admit I was puzzled because I recall seeing it come into Port a few times and the online outline of the Straitsman didn’t fit what I remember.
Apparently Bluebridge / Strait Shipping sold her in 2010. When you see the profile of the Kent ( & as in above pic) you’ll understand what I mean, it was quite unique in that respect.
