Thanks notch. It looks pretty horrendous out there and despite you're statement it still looks like a llama to me !! *orders new glasses*

The "camels" were the cargo tank hatches, which had integral gas "risers" with Pressure/Vacuum valves at the top. I can't believe that it has been 45 years since I took that photo!

Ok,ok, I know it looks and sounds far-fetched but I've seen vehicles transported on oil tankers !!

... you are very right, Clive! .... and on their return trips, these super tankers would transport Camels :-)) ..... (lol)

Yes, didn't you know? Super tankers were well-known for the transportation of Llamas........

Also, is that an animal on deck? I know it sounds crazy in that weather but it looks like a llama or a camel tied up.

The whole vessel's under water - no wonder she's classed as dead !!!
