The Rocket is the colloquial name given to the paddle steamer service that links Khulna and Dhaka in Bangladesh.

This image of a southbound service was taken from a northbound service in atrocious lighting in February 1983.

Diesel powered paddle steamer, 3 or 4 provide the service over the 350km between Khulna and Dhaka. Colloquially known as 'The Rocket' but believed to carry names Tern, Ostrich and Lepcha - it's not possible to identify which one this is, nor the one I was travelling on.

These ferries are still believed to be operating.
