Sea Princess, the caption states arriving on the MV Southsea, but she must have been the ferry on the berth as her sister was Brading was on the hulk. Perhaps you were on one of the car ferries?
Once again though a fab picture which takes me back to happier days.

No Shanklin gone by then (1980 sold to Waverley group) and these two ferries in the shot are definately Brading and Southsea owing to lifeboats on the main deck and raised funnels.

You are probably right there Stevo. My trips to the Island at that time were probably on car ferries. Goes to prove one should always write information down at the time.

Sea Princess I'm guilty of that too, the amount of photos I have which I cannot establish year or ship, very fustrating, hindsights a wonderful thing.
Did you get any pictures of the car ferries, (I've seen the one of the Saint class) but love those old Camber Queen and Fishbourne boats.
