Who Remembers Virginia Il?

I came across these old Polaroid snapshots that my mother took of her friend Kay during a trip to Gloucester in August 1983 aboard the Virginial.  I was surprised to see a big ferry boat like that tied up behind the Studio.  Who remembers this, and when did it stop coming and why?  Wouldn’t it be great if they resumed ferry service from Boston to Gloucester.  It would help alleviate vehicular traffic and we have the transportation infrastructure in place with Lady Jillian, the Trolley and CATA to allow visitors to move around and take advantage of much that Gloucester has to offer.
