CORRECTION,the question should have been can anyone recall ferries crossing the Lagan from the docks area to the shipyards.

It surprises me that no one has seen a wee business opportunity there, to operate a wee river cruise or water taxi service on the lagan. Perhaps a few gondolas a la Venezia with a few good old Belfast gondoliers belting out a few arias as they punt you up and down the river and threaten to " knock yer ballicks in " if you don't  show your appreciation. 😊 , just a thought.

Many thanks Bread Basket,great photograph,that ferry being No.5 would mean there was a frequent service as this was probably before a tram service.
What I'm looking for did it still exist in the sixties,from where on the docks side.

Kim-Jung-I'll,  it's ferries not fairies I'm looking for.
When I was in Venice on honeymoon ,at the canals guys were calling,"you want gondola ?" I told them no I've had it once and that's enough.

Kim -Jung -I'll, No No No,Key Hole Kate was only a brief encounter,with no briefs on,maybe where the gondola came from.
Venice was good but all the streets were flooded.
