Re “The In­cred­i­ble Hulk” (23/10/10). I share Kevin Jones’s lack of en­thu­si­asm for the City of Ade­laide. De­spite the name, it was not an Aus­tralian ship. It would cost a huge amount to trans­port it to Port Ade­laide and re­new it. The money should go to up­grad­ing the his­toric ves­sels we have now. It is also a mis­take to wal­low in his­tor­i­cal nostal­gia, be­cause the his­tory of Port Ade­laide only has a real mean­ing in the con­text of it be­ing the vi­able com­mer­cial port that it is to­day.
