Story: Seafarers

Working out (3rd of 3)

Working out

Crew of the ACT 7, a modern container ship, spend time in the ship’s gym during a visit to Wellington. On the exercycle is saloon steward Cliff Johnson, while bosun Derek Pullen is on the rowing machine. Because the ship spends little time in port, recreation facilities on board are particularly important.
