VENETICO ex FENBANK
The 1978 Sunderland built VENETICO, owned by Fafalios of Piraeus, is seen arriving at Heysham, Lancashire, on 5th May 1988 with a cargo of timber from Belem.
The author spent 8 years based in this tidal harbour on ferries running nightly to Belfast. The service comprised purpose built container ships ( 1961!) cattle boats, and the 21 knot mail ships, all sailing nightly at different times. Nothing the size of the VENETICO entered in those years.
