What a nice place for a sparkie to have his cabin. They even thought of putting two portholes in the funnel for him. Top marks to that designer.

Never got that close to the funnel.
Although I did sail on a couple where the whistle was pointed directly at my cabin or the radio room window.(EEK)

I guess that both his cabin and radio office were in there. What do you call the walls on the inside of a funnel? Bulkheads doesnt seem right. It must have been strange with sloping walls..."the walls are coming in on me"
