I notice that on the so-called "Sydney Ferry Appreciation Group" (facebook group) that the keyboard warriors are laying in to George and Faye (owners of the North Head) for their "treatment" of the vessel. Name calling such as "bogans" and "sons of bitches" is pretty low and gutless - the people doing the name calling and slagging off have probably never spoken to the people nor understand what the story is behind them having North Head. When they purchased North Head it was in danger of sinking (it had an emergency boat moored to it 24x7) and they only just managed to get it ashore. They had every intention of restoring the ship statically, but as a farming family have faced financial issues due to events beyond their control including more than one cyclone wreaking havoc with their property. As far as I'm concerned the "bogans" are these idiots that are happy to hide behind their screens and decry the fate of vessels like these, whilst laying in to the people that actually have been something (even in if they may have ultimately failed) - these are the real "bogans" and they need to be called out for their gutless behaviour. Lots of people scream and wring their hands and demand that they "be saved" but I've yet to see any of those actually contribute meaningfully to either of the two Manly vessels under restoration (with one or two rare exceptions). Pull your collective heads in folks, you are entitled to comment when, and only when, you either know the full stories or get your butts out of your seats and actually do something. Maybe the loudest whingers should head to Cairns for a week and help out - but somehow I can't see that happening as "someone else" should save her. Guess what - there is no "someone else".
