Yes Jim you are correct when i typed the above i was thinking g of all new vessels had four hatches for'd. the stulken served 2/3 and had a lifting capacity of 180 tons .
Some of the Strick Line vessels which carried far more heavy lifts and ran up the Persian gulf had some vessels with 300 ton Stulken derricks. I remember seeing the Shraristan at Redheads in South Shields dry dock and she looked good with her derrick .rgds Ian

Stricks only had 180 SWL Stulcken, because of the Manchester ship canal air draft restriction. P&O 'A' class had the 300 SWL Stulckens which was their largest single lift derricks, before deck cranes took over.

T & J Harrisons were early adopters of the Stulcken but it was a long time ago and I can't recall the capacity.

It's strange that Clan line chartered the first British owed ship to have a Stulcken WAVECREST but they stuck with the clumsy Jumbo? and Ben Line bought the war built heavy lifters for their open hatches to carry wool! and edging their bets with the new BENARTY.

I cannot call this FAKE news but its not quiet true, the four WW 2 heavy lift ships which Ben Line purchased were mainly for Govt: contract work and on standby/call to move MOD heavy lifts anywhere in the world . these vessels were purchased over a short period from 1947 and mainly disposed by 1965. sometimes laid up in Hartlepool or Falmouth., they carried MOD goods to Korea,North Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore and to the Islands in the Pacific for The American Atomic bomb testing. .
Yes the vessels when completed a charter were always open to another wherever in the world as you said wool from OZ/NZ . they had superb hatches for large bulk commodities suck as wool . In those days we in the Uk were the largest trader of colonial wool with France through Marseilles next then the rest of Europe. We did more finishing of wool products than any other country in the world at that time then exported it. the traditional lines always had some spare which went on offer. Today we hardly import any wool from OZ/NZ. Back to the ships , trends change so quickly , from the late sixties to today, Even we built some of the most streamlined and quickest vessels on the FE route with efficient cargo handling all to satisfy shippers who wanted their goods quicker but they were overtaken by box boats and sold within five years. This is not trying to prove a point ,just plugging a few holes , cheers rgds Ian.
