Smile Hello from Aus

G,day,
Just Introducing myself. I'm Ric from New South Wales, Australia.

I have always had a love of all things Maritime and my main interests have been the Ferry Transport history of Sydney Harbour and general Maritime History of the East Coast of Australia.
I have had the pleasure of travelling many trips on the Famous "SS South Steyne" when she was still a working ship.

To those who have never been to Sydney a Trip to Manly on the Manly Ferry is not to be missed. The rougher the weather the better.

The vessels of "Today" just don't do it for me and so I continue to get involved with groups who are dedicated to restoring and operating these older historic vessels.

Cheers Ric.

Welcome to the crew, Ric.
I remember that ferry trip. I also remember the seafood restaurant on the pier at inner Manly. Luvverly grub.
Find your way around the ship and have a good voyage.
