I've given this picture of the af-Chapman a sepia tone, in keeping, I hope with its age.
What would it have looked like in the 1950s when it first began service as a youth hostel?
How different, I wonder, will it look when it is returned in 2008.
Earlier I showed you some rigging.
Here is the whole ship.
Seemingly it entered service as the Dunboyne in 1888 and once carried passengers between Ireland and Australia. During World War II it was a Swedish Navy barracks ship.
Since 1949, the af-Chapman , as it is now known, has been used as a youth hostel.
Shortly after this picture was taken, it was towed away for renovation, but is due to return later this year.
