In NZSCo It was not so bad with two engines as even on the liner runs for meat in NZ we had plenty of time in most ports to do one cylinder on each engine. the big workload would be if a liner had to be replaced. Night engineer would do lots of preparation work, cleanig ring grooves etc. Then to get days off it would either be job and finish or some would volunteer for overtime and work till about 10pm.
