  1. And a container ship in our way, lovely crossing and a lovely boat to be stuck on
  2. First time on the Victoria, very nice, sadly a little delayed on this mornings 9am as a truck has broken down
  3. Tony, I’ve been a member on this site for over 15 years and before that on its previous incarnation, and like you I’m getting fed up of this constant moaning, which I think needs to stop before I turn my back on this site for good. Be thankful for what you’ve still got and that your still alive. Let’s hope we can all get out of this dire situation ASAP! I am missing being able to book a meal in the Still & West and enjoying a nice bite to eat and a pint of ale surrounded with the people I love. No holiday for us either this August but again I still have my family and we will make the most of a rubbish situation. Take care everyone and let’s try and be positive.
  4. Feeling for anyone who has been travelling back on the cap, just over 27 hours later shes finally on approach! having sailed on her on a bad biscay crossing you would have more than had enough by now
  5. Why is the Wight Sun used more than the Wight Light ?
  6. Arbatax has stopped sailing since the third saint started ops
  7. Cap’s bow door and inner bow, June 3rd 2010 at Cherbourg.

    St Faith

    Back in Falmouth towards the end of 2018 St. Faith went into dry dock, to have her annual bottom scrub and the engineers also removed one of her two mezzanine decks, to provide better future provision for freight, which is the first time they will have planned to removed a mezzanine deck. My question was - What did they do with the removed mezzanine deck? You answered my question by suggesting I will find it in bits packaged up in most supermarkets and shops selling razor blades. Second question was about another ship St Helen, but I’ve lost the interest in this now, so don’t worry about that question. I hope that resolves your confusion, if it doesn’t then move onto another item or thread and we will leave it at that, life’s too short to get hung up on stuff like this!

    St Faith

    No, they only removed the deck in the last two months. There was possibly nothing mechanically wrong with it unlike St Helen. I didnt have any question on the remaining deck, pretty obvious really that if you don’t remove it the weight doesn’t magically dissapear !!!

    St Faith

    Do you think they will keep the removed mezz deck in storage if this doesn’t work out or when they sell her to Delcomar ? How is the former St Helen coping with 1 deck missing
