I think this photo is from before she was lengthened. I remember the trouble the Fred. Olsen Lines ran into after the lengthening. Ferry got bigger all right - but they forgot about more engine power, and with whipping her across the Skagerak three times, I think it was every day in the summer season. She ran into a lot of mechanical trouble.
