Re: 50 years ago today
I think it was more to do with the design of the vessel.Not enough strength for the length etc.I do not think the work done by the designers had taken into account the terrific bending moments etc placed on a vessel of that size.The quality of the work did not come into the equation.I did work in Swans when Palmers closed down until I left in 1991.
