Thanks Hannes and Pieter. I have bow shots of her which clearly show the name as King Ferry and also pics on 17 Oct 1995 with the same name. Lloyds Register 1993/94 1995/6 and 1996/97 shows as King Cruiser, so you may be correct Pieter. rgds Martin

The words on the side of the ship read KING CRUISER, the shot was taken in April 1996. Perhaps the names have just been mixed up in the casualty reports.

There has been a report of her when named KING CRUISER, as sank during 1997. Obviously she was repaired.
