I never saw this "old" RELUME, I only know the current Damen version. Nice post! |

What beautiful lines. Imagine if she had been preserved as a classy cruise ship.
For the deck officers, possibly a great posting to sail on, but for the engineers, just a sweat box with steam engines, in the Gulf.
Excellent capture Jackosan. Thanks
