Very interesting photo. There must be a lot more to be told about this ship and the trade she was involved in.
Regards, Alan.

Yes Alan eventually she left Waterford but had major engine failure in bay of Biscay
as you can see she was a ferry at one time.

Thanks for the interesting link. I see she's still trading. Have only seen one livestock carrier and that was a converted coaster.
Regards, Alan.

Amazing amount of fodder piled up there. Must have been a lot of mucking out to do on passage!

I'm in agreement with eddyw. That's a LOT of hay. She'd be stable during while dry, but hay picks up a lot of weight when it gets soaked. Maybe they streach canvas over the fodder?
