    Wightlink port redevelopment & new G class

    The tow is now South of Salcombe, mid channel. About 110 miles to run. Thursday morning ETA still seems realistic.

    NOVA CRUISES: Nova Star

    She underwent a port state control inspection a couple of days ago and they found 22 deficiencies. Look at the Paris MOU website for further details. www.parismou.org . None appear to have been grounds for the vessel to be detained though. Looking at her previous inspection history, and the deficiencies, it very much points to the vessel being poorly maintained.

    VoW's AIS has sprung to life... That suggests that the sea trials might commence soon. https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:5568768/mmsi:232015630/imo:0/vessel:VICTORIA_OF_WIGHT

    Wightlink port redevelopment & new G class

    The yard launched a Fjord1 ferry today and noticed this photo (from mid Nov) showing one VoW, minus bridge at the time, also on the slipway. She can't be too far off being floated to complete her fitting out.

    The naval architects have published several 3d views. It might be best to judge her in the flesh/steel. http://www.houlderltd.com/newsroom/wightlink-g-class-ferry-steel-cut/
