The S.S. St. Helena

Issued in July 2010 and sponsored by Murgatroyd’s Tattoo Parlour and Thai Food Takeaway.

The SS St Helena has been in service around Pharos since 1946.  It functions as a mail packet steamer, ferry and supply ship making daily journeys to and from the mainland between April and September.  She likes to have her bottom scraped in late winter.

She is 239 feet long with a beam of 57 feet and is proud to have a triple expansion three crank diagonal steam engine.  But then you can tell that just by looking at her.  What a beauty!
