    Hi, I'm trying to get a sense of the approach to Buenos Aires docks in a Royal Mail Steam Packet liner such as RMS Magdalena (5372 GRT) in 1905. Would the master take on a pilot - if so, how early? Presumably he'd need two or three tugs too? How did the tugs and bridge signal to each other...

    A rather sad picture of the after part of the Royal Mail liner following her grounding and breaking off the South American coast on her maiden voyage in 1949. I can't remember offhand all the cir***stances. Found this in the depths of the hard drive-the report into the grounding...
