This cable ship was found moored in West India Docks in front of one of the new TV companies - I can't remember which. Neither can I remember exactly where she is. I believe she's on the south side of a dock and I'm on the north. This area has changed beyond all recognition and she's been scrapped.
We got on board but stupidly took no pictures. She had a pair of magnificent triple expansion engines and more auxiliaries than you could shake a stick at. The "sick bay" was somewhat basic.
