This was my first deep-see Bluey in '56.
Melampus reverted to Red Duster in '56 and was scrapped Inverkeithing one year later.
Steam turbine and pristine, the four month voyage even with enormous seas in the Bay of Biscay, taken well within her lady-like stride. See my gallery for b+w picture.
Thank-you CVB for this beautiful painting.

Once again, a superb repro CVB, better than a digital-pix!!
Can almost smell the smells of the tropics and east asia.
