Lots of OT for the forward/bow lookout man; setting out early for his watch and returning late for his watch below. Maybe a scooter was used???

Did you notice that Big Paul's forward look out has a little raised up building with heat and windows on the forecastle?

What do you want to bet that they get there through internal tunnels and passageways?

Sometimes one sees bicycles being ridden on deck on footers.
