Port Dalrymple Shipping – From 1963 to 1972 and Port Dalrymple Shipping – From 1973 to 1980 were created in recognition of the thousands of men and women who served their nations as seafarers back when ships carried large crews to safely maintain and operate them.

Many nations have allowed their own country’s fleets to disappear and opened the way for Flag of Convenience crewed ships to ply their coasts.

The photos in volumes one and two of Port Dalrymple Shipping by Bob Silberberg OAM are of the ships that sailed during the last decades prior to the advent of mass containerisation and the decline in the number of seafarers required to man the new type of ships.

The books are soft cover publications (242 x 200mm) published by Bokprint P/L, Launceston, Tasmania.

The photos are of long gone ships that, by today’s standards, still look like real ships. There are 180 different ships included in the books from coasters to Ro/Ro Passenger, refrigerated to tankers and general cargo. They are registered in countries like Israel, Panama, Libya, Sweden, UK and Australia.

All photos are in full colour with their details and the cargos they either discharged or loaded in the Port.
