Largest Yet


The two big occasions at Port Nelson this month were the visits of the Belraar, the largest ship ever to use the port, and the new frigate Otago (covered elsewhere in this issue). The Belraar, of 19,900 tons and a length of 559 ft 9 ins, exceeded by 1645 tons the tonnage of the previous biggest craft, the Caltex Edinburgh.
