Why did the Kreigsmarine never go for standardization on ships of this size? I sailed for a couple of years on a ship of identical dwt and very similar dimensions built in the same yard at the same time. I refer to the Kreigsmarine because I am certain at that time of the war owners had little say if any, and had long lost the services the ships were originally planned for. I have been puzzling over this since 1958 when I joined the ex Esmeralda, originally planned 'post war'! to join Hamburg South America Line
