  1. Could be the sea state, the Solent being sheltered.
  2. Has the increase in draft also increased running costs?
  3. Interesting stories Jonno & CB, always in awe of the sacrifice made during WW2. Scene in Portsmouth harbour yesterday evening. Picture posted on SSC, see link. https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=468777&page=408
  4. One crumb of comfort for those with travel plans after June 15th is that i'm sure BF have allowed a large contingency for further complications with the repairs. I'm fairly certain they wouldn't have gone public with a return to service date if that date was on the tight side.
  5. Otto Ernst Lindemann also recognised the qualities of Brest you’ve described above. Alas he never found the out if they where true.
  6. Sorry Jonno my post was badly worded. I presumed the 26 HGV’s was after space had been allocated to private cars.
  7. Is the demand artificially constrained by Bretagne’s size though.
  8. Several posts have referred to Cap Finistere being converted to run on LPG. Although I pop in daily I don’t remember ever seeing that, when was it announced?
  9. I agree and it looks like this is Stena's way of getting some Western Channel action without the bother of investing in vessels, ports & sailors etc. And if the Spanish routes continue to expand I could even envisage a joint venture between the two companies in the future.
  10. If I remember correctly Vickers sold Rolls Royce motors to Volkswagen. Rolls Royce (aero engines) then made a deal with BMW for use of the name/logo etc.That meant Volkswagen couldn't use the Rolls Royce name. Volkswagen now manufacture Bentleys at the old Rolls Royce site in Crewe, BMW now manufacture Rolls Royce at a newish site in Goodwood.
  11. Merry Christmas and best wishes for the new year to all posters and lurkers on here. An exciting year ahead for BF with the first ship out of three new builds entering service.

    New Look Revealed

    Coutances & Purbeck? Although they were inherited from Truckline.
  13. Sure I once read that Cote d'Azur or Champs Elysees operated Dover - Calais for several days without a bow visor attached after a collision. Never seen any pictures of this.
