A Bonnie Boat but has an unusually short Funnel Casing . I would think there was a lot of smoke on deck ??

Hi, I have the same post card with the ship's names written in blue ink " Pacheco/Palacio". This card was given to me about 55 years ago by a family friend who was master of the "Pinto" at the time. I always took it to mean they were sister ships, however I have learnt over the years to never make assumptions!

Best wishes

Steve Roscoe
