Crew Quarters

The crew was typically seven strong and included a Master and a Chief Engineer. The Master was allowed a Day Room in addition to his enlarged cabin.

Master’s Day Room. He had a desk and a table for meetings. This room is accessible to visitors.

The Master also had his own Washroom.

The rest of the crew were allocated cabins on the basis of rank and seniority.

Music was important for the crew but the radio was often the only way to keep in touch with news from the mainland, especially when TV signals didn’t reach the ships. None of the Trinity House lightvessels saw service as a pirate radio ship, however.
