Great photos, but can someone explain why just a part of the deck cargo is covered in tarpaulin?

Soaked Timber means extra weight which could produce a List on the weather side, it was quite common to see timber laden Vessels with a pronounced list coming into N.E. Ports in the 1950/60's, some didn't even make it or they had jettisoned some of their wood Cargo. Regards.
