Thanks for your informative comment, I had no idea about this type's sea keeping qualities.

best regards

spent two years of my life on her as purser/ch.steward went around the world and had my family with me for over 6 months lovely ship but bad sea ships, as they would roll on a wet lettuce leaf....

Hi Mike,

I hope Kevin enjoyed his time on the Saxonia, I am so sorry that he was part of the Penlee lifeboat disaster.

best regards
