Andy Bullions (68-72) Engineering - The smoke generator was removed during the 69 overhaul if I remember correctly.
There was also a bathythermograph (BT) winch with a level wind attachment and small stainless steel cable, back there that Jack Hadsall can tell you a funny story about.
This instrument, let out to drop deep into the sea, records water temperature in relation to ocean depth.


Pump Rooms, on the bottom of the ship, were huge. There were 56 steps on the ladder from entrance to the pump rooms at the top of the cargo deck
 to the bottom were the pumps were located. The turbines for the pumps in the after pump room were located in the engine room and the shafts went through the bulkhead to the pumps.


After peak tank was also used for fresh water storage, like the Bow peak tank.
