What can one say?
One of the most uncomfortable methods ever designed to go to sea. Poor accommodation and the food was not the greatest. But on the otherhand..... no there is no "on the otherhand".
These ships were created for officers to serve their first voyage after promotion before scooting back to the mail ships... that was my experience anyway.

Sailed on Rustenburg, Rowallan and Riebeck - all fruit carriers. First experience I had of taking coffin temperatures was on the Rustenburg!

The Rustybucket made headlines in the "Cape Argus" when we had to be towed into port after all the generators died a horrible death - in my experience the mail boat officers were promoted to the fruit boats when they proved that they could handle any emergency !
