Ferry named Ferry McFer­ry­face

The Star Malaysia - - World -

The last ferry in a new Sydney Har­bor fleet will be chris­tened Ferry McFer­ry­face – Sydney’s sec­ond favourite choice af­ter the now fa­mous jokey Mc-moniker, Boaty McBoat­face. New South Wales state gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials over­ruled the most pop­u­lar name for the ferry af­ter the trend­set­ter was first snubbed last year as a name for a Bri­tish po­lar sur­vey ves­sel. That ship was chris­tened Sir David At­ten­bor­ough in hon­our of the nat­u­ral­ist and broad­caster and Boaty McBoat­face be­came the name of one of its re­motely op­er­ated sub­marines.
