On my last post on the Waverley, I fear I did not do the old girl full justice with that little video clip from the engine room. I liked it as it showed the engine going in both directions, in response to the telegraphed commands to the engineer from the bridge.
This is a better clip, taken from the other side, showing the Waverley's engine in action while she is properly under way. You can also see the three engineers in attendance.
We were apparently doing about 14 knots when this was taken.
If you stood this close to Lady Jane's engine at 14 knots, you would not be able to hear yourself think!
