The Beaverbank of 1953 – A Harlands product.

The Beaverbank name became a bit of an icon in the 1950’s and near synonomous with the Copra run home from the Pacific Islands. She was the lead ship of 6 from Harlands at the start of a big fleet expansion. Had a narrow escape on this route in 1958 when she grounded at Fanning Island in the Line Islands, 1000 miles south of Hawaii. See the report and photos elsewhere on this site. ( Search Beaverbank).
