Very funny.
Seriously though the sheep ship had 78 "crewmen". It makes me wonder....figure the typical 4 in the engine room, 4 in the wheelhouse, 2 radio/weathermen, and maybe 6 to feed the sheep and work on deck. I am thinking some may have just been riding around on the ship for romantic reasons.

Greetings,
Mr. u. "I am thinking some may have just been riding around on the ship for romantic reasons." Are you suggesting the rest were Australians looking to chat up the passengers (cargo)?

That may have been my suggestion, or perhaps honeymoon cruise.
