I wonder if any shipbuilder, or even naval architect, could make curves like a ship like the JOURNALIST? Hand designed and hand built! People that 'sail' is the most beautiful, but to my eye, ships built in the 1950s were the most.

Maybe that is why the lines of to-day's bulkers, etc., jar with those of us who can remember when ships were pleasant if not beautiful to behold and many companies had their own particular style.
