SSA in the Twilight Years

Sorry to see yet another picture with the hull in the state that would give a SSA C/O in the fifties or sixties an absolute fit! At least the white line was still there at this stage - even though the masts and stulken had gone grey! It must have been very strange for the "old boys" to see standards slipping - even though it was a sad case of simple economics - no point in extending the hull life if the ship was due for the scrap yard in a few years!
