    I'd go with Red Lead, foredeck; looks like the forecastle door over the mast house.

    I was thinking fore deck also because of the mast house doors as they were always on the aft side of the mast house whether on foredeck or aft deck, for weather and seas purposes. If we were on the aft deck the doors would be on the for'd end of the mast house, which I cannot recall sailing with. Also in the photo can see (RH top) apron plate at aft end of foc'le. But perhaps we will never know.

    Pretty modern. The ship has electric winches.

    They were on 1930's ships Colin, I believe the Titanic had an electric crane on foredeck

    Ah, but the old clank clank of the steam winches is a memory that stays, but probably not loved by those off watch members of the crew trying to get some kip, kt

    Must be a few that remember the old monkey face topper with the ratchet bar to lock the derrick aloft, All the old Haines tree boats had them usually Aft alongside a Samson post. Your heart was in your mouth after you dropped that bar onto the ratchet, Happy days indeed Terry.

    The bundles on the wharf look like they could be hatch tents. The only place we I saw them used was west Coast USA. We always rigged tent guys on the derricks for run up and down coast.
    Also slab hatches, I Thought they came in in the 50's.

    Have used hatch tents in London, Liverpool, Melbourne, Adelaide, West Africa, Surinam (where it always rained on time, as it did in the Cameroons)

    Don't forget Colin you can retro fit hatch slabs to replace the dominoes (and have slung a few of those around), you utilise the same king and queen beams, you cannot dispense with the queen beams as they are part of the scantlings and are integral with the thwartship strength.

    Doubt we'll ever know the identity of the ship in the photo, so it's all academic, but perhaps a challenge for our computer whizz kids to find out

    Same set up on the Fyffes steamers, conveyor for loading fruit but the old way for Dry Cargo.
