9,540 tons? Not such a big ship really, But a complement of 1,262? Good lord. What was there to keep all those men busy?. Lets say she was a mobile machine shop. Give her max. 50 men from Captain down to run a freighter that size. Say an extra 100 for gun crews, another 100 for machinists,toolmakers etc.. What was there for the other 1,012 to do? I'm not being sarcastic,just mighty curios, because obviously there must have been something to keep them busy, but what? Any ex-gob going to enlighten me?
