Hello

I am a recently retired Port Engineer with Horizon Lines (US ex Sea Land)

My Aussie brother-in-law (also a retired marine engineer) sent me this link and it looks really interesting.

I enjoy the photos of the old stick ships as I have been working on container ships and these rarely have the character that the old ships have/had.

Looking forward to everyone's additions.
