How could you get the car on the boat from Llandudno?

There were eight of the "Classic" IoMSPCo's vessels still sailing in the period being recalled.  For example, the first week of June 1972 saw

Snaefell
Manxman
Mona's Isle
King Orry

all call at Llandudno on various sailings from/to Douglas and Liverpool.

710 passengers on SS Waverley today.
The Captain said the capacity was 820.
You wouldn’t believe it would you?

Are you sure you aren’t all thinking of the Lady of Man?   She was huge!
Here she is at the Pier Head .... Llandudno.

She wasn't built until '76. As a kipper I was taken on in the early '60s.

Good news!
I’ve been told today that the green light has been given to get the extensive repairs done to the pier near the Happy Valley gates.
It will begin quite soon, but it will mean quite serious disruption throughout the summer season, for approximately four months.
Access is likely to be quite severely restricted because it’s a major job to pull up a large stretch of decking, then the beams underneath, and then replace the steel girders underneath that.
It also involves taking the side railings off the pier.
However, you can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs, so let’s be thankful it’s getting done!
