    HONFLEUR - Arriving in 2019

    As well as the classification society.

    Brittany Ferries BETA site

    Sorry to dig up an older thread, but what are peoples overall conclusions on the new site?
  3. It's not fair when that's what you're used to.

    Ferry Collison (24/01/19)

    Indeed, the MOB buoy on the wing.

    P&O To Reflag Entire Fleet to Cyprus

    Would be a bit pointless as they wouldn't be able to escape a competent investigation anyway. I like the theory though. Just seems to me to be a pure flag of convenience move. Another sad day for the UK flag.

    SAILING UPDATES: 2018 Latest News

    I think the weather is causing minimal delays. Most of the time it only affects departure, and usually the arrival remains the same (with the exception of last night of course). Operating to St Malo is an interesting idea, no idea what the demand would be though. A rotation to St Malo once a week would be a good way to diversify the appeal of Plymouth perhaps?

    Tanker - warship collision

    The preliminary report is available here. For those that want to read it for themselves as the writer of the article seems to be drawing their own conclusions slightly.

    Still waiting for the return of the illuminated name on Pont Aven. A man can dream.

    Baie de Seine

    There is additional chaining. Usually crossed turnbuckles. I'll find an article or something similar later. And yeah. Trailers and artics etc are always lashed. Even if the sea is like glass.

    Tanker - warship collision

    A lot of warships do what they want in my experience. They tend to put you in very difficult situations with no regard for your own manoeuvrability. This seems to be a good example of this. Makes a nice change for it to not be a US vessel.

    Email customer services. They may give you the email of the person who tends to coordinate visits. It's definitely possible.

    Tanker - warship collision

    Some nations have a 'civil' investigation alongside a criminal one. I've just looked and found this on a government website. Perhaps the paper mentioned the Police as it's a bit flashier?
