    Wightlink port redevelopment & new G class

    The actual reason for the tow is because the MCA would not allow the vessel to sail from Turkey under her own power as there was no accommodation for the crew. This is obviously something which has changed in recent years. It's worth noting that the tow cost £800,000 for the 25 day voyage, around £32,000 per day. I will be attending the Naming Ceremony in Fishbourne next month, I'll be sure to get some photos.
