Old Greek Ferries

I am interested in old ferries (from 1960 and after) that have travelled in greek waters. Of course, the majority of them are british, french, belgian, italian, etc. I have loaded some photos of them in my gallery. I am special interested in Eleusis Bay and the laid up ferries that have remained there for some time.

It is a very good book

Thank you very much, but of course I know very well this book. It is sold also here and it is popular for greek shiplovers. But the topic "old greek ferries" is much bigger to be contained in a book. So we need much more informations and photos. For example, I think that the topic "Eleusis Bay" is a real "museum" for ships built in Nothern and South Europe and Japan. So every information is important and very useful.

Sifnos, on my site I have a couple of photos of the old Holyhead mail ship Hibernia in Greek waters as the Express Apollon. I would be keen to hear if you find any more information on her lay-up and disposal.
