Looks like you found your own ship, Punx.  :D

Now if we could just get that boiler fixed so we can get out of Yokohama, everything will be great! ^_^

Here's an interesting event that doesn't really belong in the crew thread:

March 24th, 1900:

"Five officers went ashore to represent this vessel at the funeral services of Mr. Gowey, late U.S. Consul General at Yokohama."

After a little digging, I found his obit:

Kind of interesting the things you find out. :)
