Imagine operating & maintaining everything of her cargo-handling gear...

Originally she was equipped with 4 more derricks, hatch #2 fore and hatch # 6 aft. At sometime they were taken down and stored in the lower holds. The total amount of derricks including the heavy ones was 28.
Operating was no ploblem, all automated with 5 winches for a pair of derricks plus the 2 cargo winches. Rigging all the gear for the stevedores was easy, one AB on the night watch was enough to do it. Hatch covers and tween decks all hydraulic, easy ship to work on.
