Even though she appears to be travelling at full speed ~ and if the photo was '40 - '45, war time conditions, she would be ~ the wind from her stern quarter is force 5/6 looking at her smoke.

Hi Tim.

Slight correction. The ship was never christened as PRINSENDAM. It was a possible name, but that was dropped. Launching photos just before the launching shows the name NIEUW AMSTERDAM already welded in the shell plate.
