    I would not want to cross the North Atlantic in winter on that one. I would certainly question her stability. I f you had a 70 knot gale on the beam with seas to match she would be on her beam ends and spilling your Rum and cokes.

    If she had a boiler room explosion and flames and smoke pouring through the a/c vents in all the rooms she would be a death trap. No chance of getting all those 4/5000 people off.

    Papenburg is quite a way inland. How they got that to the sea from there must have been a big task. I would never have thought the river to the sea was deep enough never mind wide enough.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?
