About this equipment

You will find that the Rietbok, which was the biggest dredger built to that date, was not owned or managed by the National Port Authority of South Africa which is a new institution. When she was built and run it was called the South African Railways & Harbours Administration, the famous SAR&H with the distinctive golden yellow funnel with three dark brunswick green stripes.

 

Gebouwd Simons, Renfrew (bwnr 697). Gesloopt 1966, East London
