Of interest from a MN member updating our ships pages:I was a vindi boy third to last intake I believe in 1966.My first trip was on the Port Albany on the MANZ run I joined it in New York . I was also on the vindex 1967 and Port New Plymouth in 1968. I have just purchased a book about the history of the Port Line here in New Zealand the authors name is Ian Faquhar and the isbn number is ISBN 0-9597834-1-5. I have attached a copy of the cover of the book it is a very very good read.
One ship sails East and another sails West
With the selfsame winds that blow.
Tis the set of the sails and not the gales
That determines the way they go.
