Ship Wreck 7 by AdamsWife Ship Wreck 7 by AdamsWife
You've all seen the wreck at a distance so now I'm going to take you on a closer tour of the wreck.

Cheynes II Ship Wreck
I was so fortunate that the skipper of the whale watching boat I was on, decided to sail around the old whaling ship that is rusting away in Albany, Western Australia. I'm told you can buy in for $10, but you have to remove it :-)

Built in Smith's Dock, Middlesbrough England in 1947 and was named the Thorbryn.
In 1962 the vessel was sold to Whale Products Pty. Ltd and renamed the Looma II.
In 1963 the Looma II was sold to the Cheynes Beach Whaling Company where they renamed her the Cheynes II. It remained with the company up until its closure of the station in 1978.
In 1979 the Cheynes II was given to the Hobart Maritime Museum and in 1983 sold to Bob Barnett for an Antarctic Expedition.
The Cheynes II was repossessed in 1984 and sold to Des Cerray.
The Cheynes II now lies derelict at Quaranup, Albany Western Australia.

Check out my pics of the Cheynes II.
I like you was on a whale watching trip and did a lap around it. :)

Nice capture.
I think it would be beautiful in a warmer lighting or in B&W :?

yes I think you are right, it would make an excellent B&W subject. I might try that.

I want it! lol, but I don't think I could afford to have it brought to America. Not to mention I don't have a place to put it.

I've only got a frog pond, so I don't have anywhere either. :D

I like this view, would be pretty cool to get aboard, it looks inviting and scary at the same time.

I wouldn't be at all surprised to see it in a movie one day :-)
