Thanks for posting the images of SS South Steyne harbor 950. She is a captivating boat for a ferry. I forgot to mention the large open ER viewing area on the main deck, to see the engines at work. Originally coal fired, later converted to burn oil. This and other Manly ferries cross the Sydney Heads which open to the Pacific Ocean, they had to be seaworthy., and they were.
She features in a book "Manly Ferries of Sydney Harbour" by Tom Mead. I have a autographed copy. She was in her livery for the delivery voyage, Manly ferries have an identifiable look, there was some amazement from ships and passengers seeing a Manly ferry transiting the Suez Canal.

It doesn't say anything about who the manufacturer was - makes me think that it wasn't a name brand, or in a western european country...

That does seem a bit low, now that you mention it.

The kicker is "tax not paid".

I was wondering if the little bow thruster would actually move the boat.

That's what I call high freeboard or high gunwales...

Or the ultimate widebody?

They take their privacy / security seriously, but still put the pilot house out in the open.

Strange!

Mark's #1946 is a fish processor of some sort.

Oliver, quit posting boats like that one. It is just too frustrating.

We were inbound through the small lock this afternoon in Seattle and looked up to see this beauty outbound through the large lock. She is the M/V Malibu. I couldn't find out anything about her, but she sure is a beautiful boat. Well, I don't know how it turned out upside down, it is right side up on my computer. Does anyone know how to fix?

Looks like Malibu.

Edit never mind. It is Malibu. One of Ted Geary's famous fantail yachts.

http://classicyacht.org/classicyachts/boats/malibu

Malibu is named after Malibu, CA. IIRC, the original owners owned most of the ranchland there.
