I haave served on M/t Cellana in the 1976 as Able seaman.
I remember one time we sailed from Melbourne to Adeliade,on arr at Adeliade and where to drop anchor to wait berth we have found that one of our anchors was missing and the Master will not believe the Mate that we had actualy lost the anchor on the way.

I remember the Cellana in the early 1970's when she visited Portland in Victoria, one time she stayed over a week due to a seamans strike. In the latter 1970's I recall seeing her tied up at the State Dockyard in Newcastle (NSW) due to a fire in the accomodation, I believe a member of the crew died in that mishap.
