Victorian Reliance - March 2018

I joined the Bass Strait cargo ferry Victorian Reliance on Thursday 29th. March at Webb Dock for an overnight crossing to Burnie, Tasmania, performing a compass adjustment in the bay, en route. The ship was very comfortable, it was a smooth crossing and I had a pleasant flight home the next morning.

I had this spacious Owner's cabin for my use on board.

It's been many years since I've been in a ship's vehicle deck. Waiting for the stern ramp to open so I can get the taxi to the airport.
