  1. Don't think they'll have a lot of choice. They'll try to fit it in somewhere for 2/3 days quickly to tidy up. As said above, not exactly BF standard.

    I would geuss a couple of logos but not much point spending much on a charter vessel if it's in reasonable nick anyway.
  3. Including Armorique? Suppose a touch up can be completed outside a dry dock.
  4. She'll get a bit of a touch up I expect, but she is huge - I don't think people appreciate how much bigger she is than the remainder of the fleet.
  5. Do we know where Armorique is going for her "pre Christmas holiday break" called a re-fit? Barfleur most definitely needs a paint-job based off that photo - new logo also or not?
  6. Any idea what work is expected in those 3 weeks? Doubt it needs a repaint again after her repaint last year. Is she entering Dry-Dock?
  7. Has Connemara recieved a paint job since she joined the Fleet? Cannot recall one last year for her, but I might be mistaken. Her paintwork looks in reasonable condition, although a little touching up required in parts, if it hasn't been painted in around 2 years.
  8. Perhaps hedging their bets, and don't particularly want to be involved in any financial difficulties. Moby's financial difficulties have been suggested for a while now, but this claim is entirely conjecture and not based on facts.
  9. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Armorique-Bruce-Peter/dp/1906608040 28p on Amazon mate + postage. 😀
  10. Doubt it will be the Audacia, bearing in mind it is know owned by a Chinese firm I believe, although Panamese flagged. And it also travels regurlarly between South Korea and China.
  11. I think that's the last two correct Tony at least! You correctly predicted the charter vessel for BF.
  12. Much of Plymouth port requires some form of investment. The terminal is functional, but not much more then that. The linkspan isn't in great nick either, and does require investment for the Long-Term I'd expect. Plymouth hasn't been invested in properly for a number of years, a shame. The layout of the port isn't ideal, and the queueing system before embarkation has changed in recent years and has helped, but there is little to no easy resolution to the current issues with disembarking.
  13. Would it perhaps be possible to do a St Malo-Plymouth sailing, followed by a Plym-Santander sailing, before a Plymouth-St Malo return? Not sure about the logistics involved here. Obviously this would reguire a second vessel supporting.
  14. I think one of the Pont Aven or the Bretagne will be replaced with a new ferry in the coming years, and the other will require a bit of money to do a little more than TLC. There isn't currently a lot to be chatered which would be suitable, so at the moment it's likely to be slim pickings.
  15. Plymouth? Surely you mean Portsmouth? Or did the announcer genuinely announce Plymouth? I also don't know how cars can be boarded upon the wrong ferry.
