Up


Edwin Fox. What an amazing ship. She served a long and full career and then suffered some hard use as a freezer ship and then coal hulk. Now she is being preserved as a historical place. She is located in Picton, NZ which is at the north end of the South Island and is where the ferries between the two islands come and go.
