  1. A pilot is still required if a tug is used with a towing line attached. Masters with pilot exemption certificates still have to have them revalidated which is carried out by the duty pilot at the time.
  2. Im sure the the staff in the terminal have no understanding of generating power to the bow thrusters which had a fault. As far as they are concerned it's Weather related
  3. Most of us just go along with the reason of a technical problem, it's only us ferry freeks who like to know why. Condor on the other hand have to be a little more transparent because of their lame excuses in the past.
  4. Will be interesting to see how reliable CL will be this coming winter.
  5. The two port side lounges I throughly recommend. Comfortable quite reclining seats with clean bathrooms. Has a sort of nostalgic feel about it.
  6. Ha the Duc it is no 3 and never went on the Tregestal. I was very fortunate when I was younger to be taken on such iconic boats and now I have ended up having a carrier at sea however not on ferries
  7. 1 Barfleur 2 Bretange 3 DDN/VDL 4 Normandie 5 Mont st Michael/Pont Aven 6 Amorique 7 Duchess Ann was quite young had a funny smell as I remember 8 Quiberon 9 Le Funnel! PLA 10 Corbiere 11 Goleo (was a baby can't remember) 12 Amorique 1 (again very young I have a vived memory sat with my grandfather near a tobacco advert) funny the things you remember
  8. Possibly the the raw water is taken off the main sea chest and discharged overboard after a filtration prosess. Just a guess
  9. I was thinking exactly the same. Also I wonder how much DGs are conveyed undeclared.
  10. Re: LD Lines Poole to Santander/Gijon (was Norman Asturais to Santander) Correct me if I'm wrong did I see the NA flying the Stena flag last night?
  11. Re: Norman Asturais to Santander She will discharge in Portsmouth tonight and then sail round to Poole for the morning. Once the BF has cleared the channel NA will enter, load and then sail at 1200
  12. Re: Norman Asturais to Santander She will be at the bar 0900 tomorrow Barfleur out NA in
