What a splendid picture!

The alarm and terror of the moment almost fall out of the frame. The agony of collision indeed. I can hear the Third Mate (Carstens?) giving a double-ring full astern on the two brass telegraphs.

What tragedy.

I sailed on the "Stockholm", except then she was the "Italia Prima" , from Jamaica to Grand Cayman in the 90's. Her steering started to jam spasmodically and I was sent to see what was causing it. She had a Freydenbo rudder unit. Did it once just leaving the pier in Montego Bay and once just before dinner was served. The last time she laid well over and as the 2nd and I raced down the very sloping alleyways to the steering gear room you could hear all the rockery going on the deck. Eventually traced to lack of servicing and leaking seals in the steering unit. It was a nice ship tho.

Looks like she is still going Herky as the MV Astoria. What a career!

Yes, the ship is 72 years since launch, but the bow is only 61. Doesn't look her years at all!

This kind of 'artistic license' may pass anywhere.... but NOT in the Gallery of Ships Nostalgia! ;-)

No argument Herky as said great painting but the ancient mariners pick up these little things. No offence meant!

Was entering a poorly light harbour late at night when I was basically navigating by the loom of the darker land(no Radar) when a passenger piped up behind,"Why don't you turn on the lights the see where you are going". Yeah right!
