Working Port

The San Francisco has been undergoing engine repairs while berthed at Station Pier. Generally when ships carry their own cranes, it indicates that they visit ports, such as some of our South Pacific neighbours, which don't have extensive on wharf or on land based crane facilities. They can be called 'feeder' ships in the sense that they take goods from a large Port like the Port of Melbourne and 'feed' them to smaller ports.
