On the foc`sle can be seen roller fairleads, breakwater,bollards and the anchor windlass. Some of the 14" bollards had been removed during her many refits. The anchors had also been removed and placed on the foredeck.
Clarke Chapman windlass. I tried the brake handles for the drums and they worked like new
Builders plate is dated 1957. I tred to remove this but it wouldn`t let go!
