This is not a boa-constrictor, but part of a 750ft. towline that will be used to tow the hulk Waraneen down to Melbourne. The Melbourne tug, Swiftness, which arrived from Melbourne yesterday, will commence the long tow back today. The towrope, to which is attached 30ft. of 4-inch wire, is said to have cost more than £160.
