  1. No Christmas/New year cruises this year.

    Looking at the weather forecast for both Antwerp & Rouen I think Brittany Ferries made the correct decision not to do the Festive Cruises this year (2017) Hopefully next year !!
  2. St Malo Dockers’ Strike

    Are Brittany Ferries Insured for the losses and expenses due to 3rd Party Strikes or do they just take the "hit" themselves and it comes off the bottom line. ?
  3. Car sizes

    Just had another thought. Anyone know how much a car/SUV's height can drop when fully laden, I would guess at least an inch in old money.
  4. Apple card reader

    I have purchased 2 of these from Amazon, 64 Gb of Internal Memory AND built-in SD Card Reader, plugs in computer and iP*d. Description from Amazon iPhone iPad memory stick USB 3.0 Flash Drive 64GB SD Card Reader with Extended Lightning Connector, RAVPower 2 in 1 External Storage Expansion for iOS iPod Mac Windows PC See https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01M36GH3V/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It basically allows you to put up to 64Gb of Video, Images or Music onto this gadget without clogging up your iP*d and read and display photographs from the SD Card in your camera. It is brilliant. Highly recommended.
  5. Camera repair needed

    Hi Ken For anything photography related I use the Talk Photography Forum at https://www.talkphotography.co.uk/ and it is full of very helpful people. As for kit I only use Canon Kit but if you checkout the above someone may have used Samyang Lenses. We (Mrs W. H) and I upgraded our 5D3's to 5D4's during the summer but use 7D2's for wildlife. Remember that the 5D3 is a full frame camera. Good luck.
  6. Camera repair needed

    Hi Ken If you check eBay you will see what 2nd user Canon EOS 7D Mk 1's are selling for and have to ask yourself a question ? See https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR7.TRC1.A0.H0.Xeos+7d.TRS0&_nkw=eos+7d&_sacat=0 Good luck with the right decision.
  7. Car sizes

    I'm the wrong side of 67 and have been around long enough to know that Experts can't agree, The Men in suits are only after your money and the Politicians (All flavours) tell lies. I have just purchased a 5 month old Ford Edge Sport Auto which is powered by a twin turbo 2.0l diesel engine, the emissions are low, the MPG is reasonable and next years Road Fund Licence is low and it has an 18,000 mile service period. I think it is the older diesels (4 years +) and those doing "short" runs that are causing these worries.
  8. Car sizes

    You may be right, but, I cannot see the day when Agricultural Vehicles, Heavy Goods Vehicles & Light Goods Vehicles are being powered by petrol engines, to my mind the humble motor car/bike represents a very small source of pollution when you add aircraft and shipping into the above mix. Surely you sort the biggest polluters out first then move on to the next.
  9. Car sizes

    No problem. I don't think it is the wheelchair users themselves trying to get to the front, it the "Politically Correct", "Jobsworths" & "Do Gooders" that want them out the way together to make life easier for "THEM".
  10. Car sizes

    That could be you one day. Paul W. H (Blue Badge Holder)
  11. Card surcharges.

    Lets hope they can sort out the other issue of "Postage & Packing" charges or will these increase to cover the Credit Card "Loss".
  12. Car sizes

    In a nut shell "No" as disabled people fall into many categories, some need wheelchair access, some just need a lift, some need space to get out of their car etc. If you need a Disabled Cabin that is a different question.
  13. Car sizes

    Add to the mix that has already been discussed above, the disabled, who can arrive in a variety of vehicles that all need to be parked near a lift so this will also affect the loading and this cannot always be pre-planed as Brittany Ferries will be unaware until check-in that this service is required.
  14. No Christmas/New year cruises this year.

    Dublin, Lisbon, Irish Sea, Bay of Biscay, not for me on a full stomach in the middle of winter. It's a Shame, enjoyed Rouen and Antwerp over the years on Bretagne and Pont Aven.
  15. New Opportunities

    Yes agree, but, when Operation Stack is "ON" very many trucks, vans and cars use the M2 and the A229 to avoid the M20 and try to pass the hold ups to get to the front.
