  1. Fire in engine room- Wightlink

    She is finally back. Was on Hulk in Portsmouth Harbour last time I looked. Have they modified Wight Sun or will she now stay in Lymington and Wight Sky Portsmouth.
  2. CI Inter-Island Service

  3. Fire in engine room- Wightlink

    Oh I was looking at Falmouth and Cherbourg. Closer to home then cheers.
  4. Fire in engine room- Wightlink

    Where has Wight Sky gone for repairs.
  5. CI Inter-Island Service

    Just dont let Condor near it! The railways are full of insest, we don't need it here.
  6. CI Inter-Island Service

    Aurigney already exist so why take time on a passenger only ferry. Also no way give it to Condor, no competition and they are not over popular over recent years.
  7. Wightlink port redevelopment & new G class

    The W Class had web cams at the Shipyard. Have there been any for the G Class.
  8. HOVERTRAVEL: New Hovercraft

    All 3 on Ryde slipway last Thursday with old ones running the service. Are they still having issues with others?
  9. New cowes floating bridge

    longer prows with a 12inch bar that its the slipway would help like the car ferries that level it out.
  10. Red Jet 7 - Red Funnel orders another Fastcat

    That's why back in 1990 capacity was 142 x 4 = 568 per 2 hours 2018 will be 175+150+100+60= 485. So Red funnel could offer more sailings as 15% reduction in Wightlink offerings at peak times. If Red Funnel get new terminals will they change or just stick to hourly. Seem to have spent a lot on upgrading fleet comfort and want to invest in terminals but not capacity.
  11. Baie de Seine/Etretat

    Looking forward to Normandie on the Le Havre run now its been confirmed by BF when new build arrives.
  12. Red Jet 7 - Red Funnel orders another Fastcat

    Have to say its about time the car manufacturers started being responsible not only in size but power. Why do drivers need a car that does 0-60 in 3 seconds. We don't race them, we drive them on crowded roads with people who have cars much less powerful but we are all suppose to do max 70mph so why such powerful irresponsible cars.
  13. Red Jet 7 - Red Funnel orders another Fastcat

    But still meano that room for Red Funnel expansion as more people not getting time or day theyou want with Wightlink.
  14. Red Jet 7 - Red Funnel orders another Fastcat

    No more than about 10 years ago as all vessels downgraded capacity wise by quite a lot.
  15. Red Jet 7 - Red Funnel orders another Fastcat

    I am surprised that they have not increased Car Ferry capacity. With Lymington offering less of a service than in the past and Wightlink suffering delays all the time I thought Red Funnel may want to offer better than hourly. In the 1970s they had 5 vessels for cars.
