Steam Cranes on Merchant Ships.
« on: April 05, 2007, 07:11:12 PM »

My new project is a Cargo/Passenger vessel built in 1895. She was fitted with 4 steam cranes with barrel (winch) ends. I am struggling to find drawings of this type of crane. Anyone help? BY

What is the name of the ship?    Steam cranes were few & far between in that era, but there were some.   Most ships used steam winches & derricks.
