1 GEORGE McNEE, CHIEF ENGINEER 1923 ORIGINAL CHIEF OFFICER'S LOG BOOK OF THE SAIL AND STEAM PACKET SHIP S.S. TEES PLYING HER TRADE FROM ARDROSSAN SCOTLAND TO GREYMOUTH NEW ZEALAND AND THE LAND DOWN UNDER
ARDROSSAN SCOTLAND ASEA VIA SS TEES TO NEW ZEALAND 1923 Good+ Manuscript 
On offer is an interesting relic of sea travel being an original 1923 manuscript 'Chief Officer's Log Book' for the Sail and Steam Packet Ship "S.S. Tees", carrying freight and passengers most likely, starting from Ardrossen Scotland to New Zealand and various ports in Australia via the Suez Canal from January 4th through April 19th. The Ship's Master is A.I. Dowell, and the Chief Officer is George McNee. Both men have signed their names at the bottom of each page of entries. This is a picture perfect example of century-old naval tradition as this wonderful 10¾" x 12¾" logbook is faithfully filled out. The log sold specifically for the purpose of keeping ship's daily records while at sea and as such has printed pages to be filled in by hand. The book is comprised of 100 pages, of which 97 have been used. Categories pre-printed on the forms include: courses, deviations, distances, winds, latitude and longitude, average speeds, times and names of persons responsible for each watch titled "On The Look Out", and "Lanterns Hung Out" and other details of the related records all filled in by the Chief Officer of the S.S. Tees. The "Remarks" section of each day reveals varying information: weather conditions, sails set, compass error ascertained by azimuth, plus the various occupations of the crew are also mentioned: painting, steering gear oiled and examined, pump wells sounded, decks washed down, etc. Comments on the Ship's movements and handling are also noted such as: "Vessel labouring"; "Vessel rolling heavily". Ports-of-Call, harbors entered by the S.S Tees during this voyage include Ardrossan and Newcastle, Australia and Greymouth, Picton, Wellington, and Lyttleton, New Zealand. Various cargos including coal and timber are loaded and discharged. The manuscript entries are written mostly in dark, bold ink and are very readable, the covers are somewhat worn and stained but sound, intact and attractive. The internal pages are in very good condition - tight and complete with some soiling and staining. Overall G+.
