Cash Advance---This system still followed on ship till now.But its funny concept where nothing like "Advance".I mean before month starting they will give us some cash if needed and that also our balance should not go in negative at month end so what we basically get is our month's salary no more than that even we are there on ship for nxt month.Everyone want to safe gaurd their at the end what we get is what we have earned its our money only.

Second Picture is called "The Settling Office" where wages of people settled after coming from voyage its hard to believe that skipper of vessel made 62 pound for a week and sailors made just 6 pounds for week there is large gap even these sailor work hard onboard.Today also captain salary is 10 times more than that of sailors.its all same today.

Third picture--where we can see electrical fitting of those days.

and fourth picture is of boiler of old days.and fifth picture is my last picture and with that I have shared almost all of my picture and I put whatever the knowledge I had about fishing and shared my experience with you all I hope you have enjoyed the "Virtual Tour" of Grimsby Fishing Heritage Center.
