One unmistakable feature of this ship which I clearly remember, was her huge tumble home, it can be seen clearly in this photo, if you look at the red cross on the hull amidships, the angle at which the cross lies, gives some idea of the extent of the tumble home.

Lowering her boats must have been a problem, especially if had any degree of list.
