Gather in the morning on a steamship (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

amass

Here is my best explanation:

'gather in' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'the morning on a steamship' is the subsidiary indication.

'the morning' becomes 'am'.

'on' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'steamship' becomes 'ss'.

'am'+'a'+'ss'='amass'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for amass that I've seen before include "gather together", "collect", "stockpile", "Assemble", "Get together", "Bring together", "Be a compiler", "Accumulate, heap up", "Collect, hoard" and "Gathers".)
