Sunset Cruise Tin Can Bay

For $25 I went out on a small cruise boat with a handful of other passengers nibbling their packeted treats and sipping wine and beer held in polystyrene containers to see the sunset.

TIN Can Bay has a new maritime resident not usually found in these waters.

The Lady Woodward is a decommissioned Sydney ferry that is being lovingly transformed into a habitable houseboat by owner Skipper Dave and his family.

The ferry, which was built in 1970 to carry 605 passengers, did the daily run between Manly and Circular Quay, before she was retired in 1998.

For 10 years, she worked as a tender vessel for a salmon farm in Strachan, Tasmania, before Dave took possession in May 2010.

…..Sadly since this story written in 2010, the owner is now deceased and the ferry lives here in Tin Can Bay

The Cruise boat returned along Snapper Creek and the Marina where the fishing boats were all safely moored.
