This is a great series of shots of this beautifull vessel. Interestingly they span 18 years and yet seem to be from the same spot and angle! Are these shots taken of her coming out their refit yard by Deas Island on the Fraser River? Cool anyways. Also interestingly I notice that in 1974 she had what looks like 8 lifeboats, and yet by her sinking in 2006 there were only two. They're probably sitting on big pallets somewhere in the BC Ferries yard.
