Wink Too much work!

I only sailed with 4, 5 and 6 cylinder main engines, so with
planned maintenance and a benevolent C/E after a long voyage,
there was plenty weekends off to sample and enjoy what was
on offer.

But looking at the, 'Port Caroline' for instance, with TWO 6
cylinder Sulzers, the ongoing maintenance must have been never
ending, especially on a liner service rather than tramping.

How did the Engineers cope on vessels with so much work?
