Response to Believe it might be the nuclear propulsion

When we visited Perth in 1967 and 1969, the Aussies were more than happy to have us tie up pierside in Fremantle. However, the US Atomic Energy Commission refused to allow this and we had to anchor out in the roadstead. Interestingly, in 1969 we moved from Perth/Fremantle south to the little coastal resort town of Bunbury--where we tied up pierside (never understood why it was OK there but not in Fremantle). Anyway, it could be USAEC issues regarding Sydney.
