Washing down

A.B. at work on M.V. "Aureol" whilst crossing the Bay of Biscay in 1966.
No safety harness but at least the bucket was tied off!

Painted the mast once in such weather: the next job was to scrape all the glass on the bridge house with a razor blade!
The position is given as "crossing the Bay of Biscay": why are the derricks still topped?
I see the man climbing at right, and I see a bucket and a piece of clothing between the nearest derricks, but I just can't make out what this clothing contains: where's the head of the feller? Are that his feet nearest the bucket? Regards, Stein.
