I’m thrilled to experience Peking moving as the ship she is. Here’s a great time to watch the 9 -minute YouTube clip of Peking 79 years ago pushing through a storm on the English Channel. Great statistics on Peking in this clip. Thanks to Peter Mello of Sea Fever and the podcast Messing About in Ships for putting up a link to this Irving Johnson footage.
