Default DQ soot

I learned very quickly not to wear white on the DQ - even though she burned Bunker C, not coal, the daily blowout included fine particles of soot which landed on the chairs on the Sundeck and Texas Bow. I'd take a towel with me the first outdoor sitting session of the day. But she was maintained well in my day, even having the porters polish the brass 'key doorholders' and knobs weekly, along with all the interior brass.
