Old or classic?

First published March 28, 2007

Some old ships still have the beautiful brass shining all over the bridge. If well kept they become classic ships instead of old rust buckets. 
This beautiful magnetic compass belongs to "Kormoran" a small 40 years old (classic) vessel that brought the main engine for one of the Viana Shipyard newbuilding.
Check out these engine controls!
