Looks like she has plenty of RFD,s, 2 cranes as well but pretty sure she is not a "Johnson" hehe.

Originally the Danish inter-island ferry "Halsskov" (1956, 3194grt). Sold 1989 and since been around the Med on various routes, also Red Sea. Continued existence must be doubtful.

There use to be a ferry called "Truebridge" going between Port Adelaide and Kangaroo Island in South Australia that looked like similar to this. Not quite sure if it is here. I am sure that there is a picture posted here on shipsnoststalgia somewhere.

Hi Yvon. This is Troubrige on your link. I can see now it’s not the same ship posted above. However there is a photo taken when she was laid up in Port Adelaide posted too. There here colours would match the ship on picture here.
