I was on the Zincmaster in 1979/80 , she also had a bow door for fork lift trucks to carry zinc and lead ingots into a cargo deck on the port and starboard wings plus, small side doors which would fall out board to place the ingots (tidal only) and the ships own fork lift would pick them up and stow them.
