Default Re: HMS Vernon

Nice pics of the famous UK port! That tower "looks" to be quite something....from my side of the pond here is the last big ferry operating on the Great Lakes: S.S. Badger. She sails from Ludington, MI to Manitowac, Wisconsin now. I saw her launched-sideways of course-in 1952 in Sturgeon Bay, WI while sitting on my dads' shoulders. Still steaming, on coal, all these decades later...gr8 4 hour one way ride! All loading/unloading is done through her stern; hence the "seagate" that lifts. She must turn 180 degrees in each basin to come in stern first. DFO
