Hi Captain03,

I think all of us are starting to know what your favorite ships look like ... Maybe you should have started a topic named "Pictures of my favorite ferries" ! it's hard to follow the discussion with all the picture there are to download when you load a page of this topic !!

By the way, your pictures are fine, but it wasn't the initial purpose of this topic - or  the subject text isn't well choosen !

What is the point in adding extra ferries, if the present ferries have crap handling characteristics, surely it would be more like sense to get the present ferries up to scratch. As opposed to adding more crap handling ships.

İstanbul Car Ferries
LxB                       :73x18
Speed                   :12.5
Passenger Capacity :600
Vehicle Capacity     :80







Istanbul car ferries for me too! I have very close relations in Turkey, And I would like to say the Izmir Car ferries are actually a bit better. They are generally the same. I would also like the istanbul normal ferry.

We have enough quantity of ferries here in SS: Red Eagle, Red Jet 4, Pride of Rotterdam. And you still want more, or you think that something is still missed in the SS Ferry Service? It should be named "Ferry Simulator" then.  :D

Maybe I'm not a ferry fan, but if you ask me which ferry I'd like to see in future SS, the answer will be so:

But I'm 100% sure that this ship won't be added here just like lots of other requests  :-\
