Who would have thought that amondst all those liners, the old STOCKHOLM would have been the champion survivor of time!

Michael, you should know these docks and H&W by now. You can leave nothing lying around !
More than a crane gone for a walk, Larsen lost a tower, but nice you looked long enough to notice.
Finn, my surname is mis-spelt Phin and is slightly older than the Stockholm/Athena.Trouble is she is lasting better than I !

This ship would look all the better with a mid-mod Italian liner funnel...
Well done ,a lot quicker than most yards could do it ! Tend to agree on the looks it is more in keeping with her design and age.

I noticed you have used the Galileo's or Marconi's funnel of Lloyd Triestino days my favourites on which I travelled on many times.

Frank, 'twas not I who redesigned her funnel, the credit should go to Das Imperator, it takes me all my time to push these buttons, no tricks from me.

I think she looks rather splendid as she is - she is glorious compared with the Size 30 shoe-boxes that are called cruise-ships nowadays. Wonderful original photograph of an historic ship. Donald.
