I haven't got a clue, as I did like ships at the time but I was not ferry-mad like I am now, so I did pay attention to the name. As I can see a person who was travelling with me on a trip in the second part of 1968 or in 1969, if 'Artevelde' was sailing at the time, it should be her. In fact this is a photo I took of an old slide of mine on a screen. Thank you for this precious information. I also travelled to Ireland in 1969 on the 'Duke of Rothesay'. Can anyone give some information about that ship? I remember driving inside by the side, not by the aft...
