Patagualino, but also built at a time when crew sizes were about twice the size of what they are now..

Built when ships had civilised-sized accomodation!

Hi Pieter,
thanks for sharing, sailed on her as 2nd Eng. from September 1971 til March 1972.

Thanks Pica, just to prove: never let an economist make suggestions about a technological issue...(I arrived at this conclusion because all the turbine ships in the D-class had two stacks...)

Hello Pieter,
the twin funnel or stack arrangement had nothing to do with 2 turbines but with the two boilers. She had the common high and low pressure single shaft arrangement. Same as her near-sisters "Drupa" and "Darina".
I worked on both "Drupa" and "Darina" as a young mechanic apprentice. Long time ago....!
Just to mention: She has been built by DW/Deutsche Werft in Hamburg-Finkenwerder and not at Howaldts.
Thanks for posting
