It was worth saving as a Museum ship, truly beautiful, yacht like lines.
thank you for sharing

In my view, this design is distinctive & well balanced. Her funnels are also king posts for 2 derricks, the lack of normal funnel is compensated by an "overblown" top of the wheelhouse.

@Clive Harvey: Not really but I do appreciate, as the farmer said when he kissed his prize cow: "Every man to his own tastes." I have always been of the opinion that these HSDG ships would have looked even better without those (at-the-time) modernistic exhaust uptakes instead of a conventional funnel

I hesitate to ask but, is your tongue in your cheek?
Bob Scott on Jan 12, 2018 20:42 (2 months ago)
Pity they forgot a proper funnel

You said it all, utter perfection a joy to behold.

Unlike 99% of modern ships, every angle of the CSD looks attractive. Either by accident or by design she's really pleasing to the eyes.
