Hello All, I have read with interest the messages in this thread,the ships which were described as "Lisbon Subs" were in the 1500 gross ton range -give or take a ton here and there, Motor driven with twin screws capable of 12 knots they plied the Lisbon- Oporto trade "Darinian" (48) "Mercian" (48) and "Palmelian" (48) engine was amidships,all were 273 feet long, however the food was very good the deck crowd was very few as we worked 4 on 4 off and then they wanted you to work your watch below as overtime!!--I couldnt stand the pace and got out quick after one trip.
Cheers Peter (Thumb)
