Won't it be great when the computer guys give us programs to show the vessel at her load lines, and from different angles, and let the camera come onto her main deck for a "virtual tour" lookaround.....
Till then, your photo's a lovely sight: I can almost smell the sea and hear the gulls.
I sailed on three of this class, we often brought coal to Cornwall, mostly to Par or Truro and very often backloaded with China clay or stone, I am sure that at times we would discharge coal at Par then sweep and wash the holds and then backload China Clay.
Hello Cosmikal; The Captain and the mate lived amidships, either side of the saloon which had a coal stove and the ships radio. The two engineers, cook and sailors lived aft, the sailors had a three berth cabin on the Atomicity, a two berth and a single berth on the Signality and on the old Aridity the two sailors lived in one cabin. No running hot water on the Aridity, if you needed hot water,you had to heat it in a bucket on the galley coal stove. They were happy ships though.
