A question for Merchant Johnny.

#1
In my day we left harbour with much rushing about , shouting, piping . I also recall bag piping, bugles blowing and a Booty band and I was also dragged out of my warm store room to line the side!! So how come you Merchant men can put to sea mile long tankers, top heavy container ships and liners with a man and a dog forward and the ships cat aft :|?

Operational not decorational.
Same with boats.Only half a dozen required though the odd spectator turned up courtesy of the wardroom.

It's fuckin obvious Jesse, the tankers don't have sails.
