Harry O May ( ex Man On)
In 1975 ( this is on the internet) the Lake Illawara struck the Hobart Bridge bring down a span, sinking the ship, loss of life, & splitting the city in half.
Ferries were brought in from Sydney to help out & also the large ferry Man On from Hong Kong to help out.
Fascinating. I spent my last weekend in Australia, March 1976 seeing this. Here is the " Harry" on Hobart.
