"I come bearing gifts"

My Latest Project, the Sidney Type RORO ferries of Canada, these were the First BC Ferries when they entered service in 1960, and by the time the last one (Tsawwassen) left service in 2008, they had served over 48 Years, and one (The Sidney herself) Still exists albeit Rotting away at a Ship Graveyard in Mission BC

Firstly will be Sidney Herself (In Service 1960-2000, Abandoned 2000-Now)

Early 1960, as built (only lasted a few months it seems before renovations)

2000, Exactly how she looked when Sold to private owners in Mission BC, and Technically how she currently looks, though without the Decade of Rot, Moss, and Damage like the stern mast collapsing
