The Lica Maersk suffered mechanical issues at Lyttelton last Friday and she has remained alongside there since undergoing repairs. Fortuitously, the Cap Blanche had not not yet left the region after being displaced from the US West Coast/Australia so she arrived at Port Chalmers on 19.9 to load the Lica Maersk's cargo, afterwhich will head to Lyttelton to load distressed cargo there as well. Some of the Lyttelton containers were off the Lica Maersk, discharged after being loaded at earlier ports but shipping on the Cap Blanche will ensure they reach Asia a week earlier than if they had waited for the Maersk vessel to be repaired and resume service.

Does anyone else have advice along these lines? 

I would love any hints or ideas for the ship-centered part of my story. I am brainstorming story twists and plot lines. Examples:  What does "pecking rust" mean, and what tool(s) would be used to do that?  Who might my young character come into contact with?  I'm thinking of possible characters like maybe a cabin boy, but I don't know the duties of a cabin boy or their usual ages. Would a cabin boy work directly for the captain? What other interesting or colorful characters might be on board a cargo ship in 1896? How large would a crew have been, in that era, on a ship the size that Stefan is suggesting?

I am really open to any interesting short story ideas. In a nutshell, my main character will spend a only a couple of chapters on the ship. Three at the most. It's not really a story about a voyage. Most of the main plot occurs on land, and I'm doing great with that part of the book. To fill things out and make the voyage portion fun for the reader, I want some adventures and interesting characters to come in during the short voyage section.

Any ideas?

Robert - this is because Chrome has changed - as the site does not use https: it is reported as Not Secure - but is just as secure as it has ever been.
