New Ferry Arrival and back after long trip North

The brand new ferry Veteran arrived in St. John's this pass weekend from a shipyard in Romania. The trip took a while, engine problems and bad weather delayed the arrival. The ship is rather a fine looking ship, her capacity is 200 passengers and 60 vehicles and is 80 meters long.
