Impressive pictures of the ferry, except with hydrojets, I never saw surface propellers make such a sheaf. The old and classic style Lighthouse is nice too. good.gif

Thanks everyone! Glad you like the shots. Pics were re-sized for internet display, but no other post processing was done. Also, corrected URL to the camera.

 

The Star Line uses a jet drive hyrdofoil. I prefer the smoother ride of the Arnold Line turbine catamarans...
