Most cruisers used this harbour ferry to get to and from shore because waves often created rough conditions at the landing jetty. The fee was nominal and damage to dinghies was avoided by this safe and convenient shuttle. It did not run at night, but there was not much nightlife in Jamestown anyhow. This photo shows Jerry and Hilary riding the ferry on a relatively calm day.
