VERY nostalgic. From late 1978 to mid 1980 I must have done that trip aboard the Norland or Norstar a hundred times, back and forward to Holland.

A superb service it was too, and all the food you could eat was included in the ticket!  :-)

The vid didn't show the incredibly tight clearance between the ship's side and the lock out to the Humber. There was maybe 6" to spare on each side!
