Congratulations on a great site. Very informative. I am researching an
American passenger who sailed on the Tiki in 1957 to Pitcairn and
collected a chimpanzee named Moko. His name is Robert "Bob" Tomarchin and
sailed on to possibly Panama. Mr Tomarchin also 'stowed away' on the
Rangitata in Nov 1957 to get to Pitcairn and was taken to Auckland and
charged. If anyone remembers sailing with Bob or knows anything of him or
his trip (no matter how small)could they please contact me on the above
email. Would be extremely grateful.

Well researched site. I particularly like the interior views of this
milestone liner. Are there any deckplans of the accommodation and public
room areas? - that's all you need to make things complete.

From across the Tasman - Great site! Would love to hear from anyone who
knows any detail of the Rangitiki being used to ferry British and Allied
POWs from Japan to the east coast of America/Canada,after WW2.Believe my
father may have been on this voyage.

I am delighted to be the first to congratulate you Richard on your Tiki
web site - I know from my work on her sister ship - the Rangitane, how
much time and effort you have put into the research. Well done!
