  1. Is this the original Karina? I have a photo of my sister and I standing on the wheelhouse but it was open to the elements. This was prior to a trip to Port Soderick in the 1950’s whilst on holiday. Will be back in The Island again from July 5th on holiday with my wife, sister and her husband.

    • This is not the original Karina but was so named because the original one was the first boat that I went on in the mid 1950s when my grandfather used to take me to Port Soderick. I have many pictures of the original which I new very well.

      I would love to see the photo of you and your sister on the Karina, I have written a book which features both Karina’s as well as other manx pleasure boats entitled Douglas Head Ferry and the Port Soderick Boats, published by Twelveheads Press.
