Thanks Steve,
Zeltic is intended to look like a small working boat, hence the mast and derrick (which sits above the cargo hatch on the foredeck). Also we have very few bridges to deal with, and as most of our vessels go to sea at some stage, its useful to have somewhere to mount the masthead light to. Alan has always said that as we can't afford large steamers, our small steamers need to look like large ones, hence the bigger vessel inspirations.

In my opinion one of the best looking little steamers I have ever seen. Zeltic is eye candy for me.
