Title: Port News: Wellington
Author: Dobson, S
Abstract: News of recent ship arrivals and other events in the port of Wellington. First item in the miscellany discusses the low level of overseas arrivals in the port (statistics given) with result that fewer interesting ships become available for observation. Next, critical comments made on the likely future usage of the Passenger Terminal then under construction, with particular note of the deficiency of its baggage handling capacity. Rest of the items are brief descriptions, with technical details, of vessels calling into Wellington in the summer of 1963 which had unusual or interesting features. The impact of the immiment opening of the Marsden Oil Refinery on tanker deliveries is briefly discussed.
