Perhaps amazing how all these old ways of doing things was kept going well into the 60's. Almost as if the British MN collapsed as the new technology took over. They were certainly great times to experience your apprenticeship or time on deck.

She must have had a very fussy Bosun and Ch. Off. Look at that immaculate paintwork! And every little fitting painted in its own special colour... red decks, black mooring bitts, grey winches, brown masts, white derricks. Lovely!

It is indeed a fine nostalgic photo and judging by the location maybe being used in anger although as Chris pointed out it looks like he,s swinging it a fair way.
Stephen,I know you are a marine artist and look at things differently to us mere mortals,tell me I havn,t gone colour blind!!!!
