Thanks, Graham. Nice to get local information and perspective. I think if I lived there, I'd be on that ferry every day!! I love ferries.
The renaming of these ships has become quite common, or so it seems to me. I watch maritime activity using marinetraffic.com and vesselfinder.com since we have a waterfront here. There's been lots of change, consolidation, etc. in the shipping world, especially since the rich people stole all the money in 2008. I sometimes watch a video done on the "Portland Senator" in 2008 -- "Ten things I have learned about the sea."
If you look for that ship today, it's the "Hanjin San Diego."
A lot of the ships I shoot on our waterfront here have had different owners -- and name changes.
Also, for anyone with an interest in marine shipping, I recommend the book, "Ninety Percent of Everything" by a wonderful writer named Rose George (a more English name I couldn't imagine!). http://www.amazon.com/Ninety-Percent-Everything-Shipping-Invisible-ebook/dp/B009LRWJKW/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1422721054&sr=1-1&keywords=90+percent+of+everything
