The design of the raised quarterdeck steamer has changed little since the introduction of the design. She has a high forecastle forward, carrying the anchor winch and housing the crew. Next comes the low foredeck with a small hatch. Just forward of amidships is the accommodation for the captain and the officers, with the chart house and the navigating bridge above acting as the 'breakwater' against heavy seas coming aboard. On the raised quarterdeck is the main hatch and the long casing over the boiler and the engine. Here the engineers, fireman and cook are housed. The lifeboats are raised on platforms level with the top of this casing. There may be two or three masts, the fore and main masts being equipped with cargo booms, each with its own winch, capable of working cargo when the ship is in a port without the proper facilities
