Picture of / about 'Yarra River' Victoria - SS Beltana Duke & Orrs Drydock Yarra River1 - SS Beltana Duke & Orrs Drydock Yarra River (Contributed by: GraemeReid  2018 pictures  )
SS Beltana ran aground and became a constructive loss after striking the Corsair Rock in the Rip Channel at Port Philip Heads on 16th September 1963. She was beached on Mornington Peninsula off Dromana and later was taken to the Duke & Orrs drydock in the Yarra River near Spencer Street Bridge Melbourne where these reproduced colour slides were taken. After being patched up, she was sold and towed to Hong Kong and broken up. SS Beltana had a three cylinder tripple expansion steam engine with an exhaust turbine - single shaft one screw. Power = 390 nhp; Speed = 11 knots and tonnage was 3034 grt; dimensions were 108.9 X 14.8 X 6.2 Metres; She was built in 1937 by Calendon Shipbuilding & Engineering Co Ltd Dundee; Engine was from Kincaid John G. & Co.... Corsair Rock claimed many ships over the years. Apparently it is reportedly about one kilometre out from Point Nepean and is beneath the surface, even at low tide. The anchor and chains are missing, apparently due to them not being able to be raised because of lack of power
