Of course on a box boat you have a single berth cabin, private bathroom and shower, air conditioning, endless fresh water; ie, better accommodation, better food and better company than they get in jail, to comment on Dr Johnston's comments - but who really cares? Why were hard ships so often happy ships?

Ahoy Dave,
You forgot a very important issue,wives/fiancees/girlfriends can enjoy their husband/friend,even in the lower ranks,as it was only for the staff-members in the old days, with a voyage on the vessels nowadays,especially during the summer periods,always a 5 to10+ persons more to feed,because of all that luxery on board as you mentioned, would have saved a lot of divorces in the old days,my first ship with airco was in the end of the seventies, even in the sixties had to share mine with a steward/galleyboy.
