Thanks terry for adding those details. There is a great deal of information and photos of the Chartres and Express Santorini, including about how she was nearly lost in a major storm on the Ournewhaven website here:http://www.ournewhaven.org.uk/category_id__70_path__.aspx

She had much higher deadweight when used as train-ferry - the 750 tonnes mentioned above is when used as car ferry. Probably one of the most handsome trainferries on the Channel ever - she had also a reputation of having a most good kitchen on board!
