ABOUT US

A ONE MAN BAND, SINGLE SAILOR'S EFFORT TO PLACE ONLINE
GRADUALLY
A COMPILATION OF ALL AUSTRALIAN SHIPPINGS LINES FROM THE ADVENT OF 'STEAM' ONWARDS

AS A NON MEMBERSHIP SITE,
IT IS DESIGNED BY MYSELF FOR THE BENEFIT OF AUSTRALIAN MARITIME HISTORY
I PERSONALLY SAILED FOR SEVERAL YEARS ABOARD THE 'CAPE' CLASS VESSELS FROM THE LATE 1970'S UNTIL THE EARLY 80'S. CIRCUMNAVIGATING ALL OF THE AUSTRALIAN COASTLINE WORKING MARINE BEACONS, LIGHTHOUSES (AT A TIME WHEN THEY WERE MANNED) AND OTHER FORMS OF NAVIGATIONAL AID FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL SHIPPING
WHERE I FULFILLED A CHILDHOOD DREAM TO GO TO SEA, I HELD ONTO MY HOBBY OF COLLECTING SHIP POSTCARDS AND A GENERAL INTEREST IN THE CHANGES OF SHIPPING IDENTITIES UP TO THE MODERN DAY
BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF INFORMATION OF MANY AUSTRALIAN SHIPPING LINES LONG GONE, I WAS COMPELLED TO CREATE THIS WEBSITE.
JUST OVER THREE YEARS SOLID MARITIME RESEARCH AS WELL AS LEARNING WEBSITE CONSTRUCTION FROM HTML FORMAT HAS SEEN THIS WEBSITE UP AND RUNNING FROM THE 19TH SEPTEMBER 2007.
MANY MANY MORE LINES TO UPLOAD, BUT ONCE THE INFORMATION HAS BEEN PROCESSED, SUCH WILL BE DONE. ALL TIME CONSUMING AND SOMEWHAT EXPENSIVE THEREFORE ALL AND ANY DONATIONS TO HELP KEEP THIS WEBSITE ONLINE, ALL THE TIME WOULD BE MOST APPRECIATED
