What's going on here then? "Incendio" it says in the upper right corner, fire okay, but the men on deck doesn't indicate a fire. Not even that much heat. Let's say the fire has been, the water is still being pumped so as not risk it starting again, but if the hull is as holed as it is, why on earth is so much of the wooden scaffolding intact? And that right where the deck plating is gone? Has there perhaps been several fires? And one thing more: she doesn't seem quite upright, should everybody really be where they are? Not quite clear to me what the situation here pictured really is. But obviously she was finished or repaired. Regards, Stein.

Something not right here Stein as that looks like a ball of fire coming towrds those people and no one is taking any notice.

Hi Gdynia. And strangely I've searched the web for information, found her mentioned often enough, but not found a word about any fire. Here's her picture: http://paginas.terra.com.br/lazer/Navigazione/Indiana-Lloyd.html Regards, Stein.
