Pride of York

Went on her last weekend (ex Norsea) from Zeebrugge to Hull...was quite impressed. Food, ambience, comfort etc was good...needs painting though..!!

And if anyone could inform the Port of Hull that one staff on passport control is not enough for 300 foot passengers is not enough...I'd be grateful...thanx..!

Hi Alec,

Seems an age ago now that I stood by the Pride of Dover as Bosun in 1987 during the last stages of her building and then her sea trials up off Norway.
Good memories of that first year, but glad I moved on.
Hope you are keeping well.

Best Regards

Yuge
