Whaling boat Cheynes III ex Looma III -63 ex Thorgrim -62 built in 1947.
These catchers was not scratched by the ice when they went in warm waters off the west coast of Australia, so all this rusty enough rather the result of lack of maintenance. I 1978 whaling was outside Australia banned and the boat was laid up. I 1982 she was sunk outside Albany and is today a destination for wreck divers.
