    Interesting video. Saw a couple of my old ships there, Napier and Argentine Star, both meat boats on the S American run. They had their Liverpool offices in the former White Star building on James St. Sadly most if not all ended their days in Alang.

    No trying to guess this funnel. Never sailed with Blue Star but any time I saw one it always looked impressive. No doubt these lads did there bit to keep them looking good.
