    HONFLEUR - Arriving June 2019

    That is my interpretation. I think it will go in front of the current "end" section at vehicle deck level.
  3. I think its a matter of relativity. Food will always be more expensive somewhere where you have a captive audience; Sometimes people won't think of the quality just the price - Sometimes I think it is also a bit of grass is always greener - prices just look more expensive compared to what your mind says other places are, especially with no way to compare. I do feel that BF is more reasonably price to other operators, and quality is good (breakfast compared to Dover Calais, I know where I would go). Planes are another level entirely - £3-4 for a very scrawny sandwich...

    That was my first thought, but P&O's Spirits have something similar, high glass window railings astern. Maybe stopping people flicking things onto the vehicle decks.

    It looks like glass railings, not sure why only the back section has them

    HOVERTRAVEL: New Hovercraft

    Looks to be more problems with the new craft - Service suspended yesterday at around midday, and seems like no service since!
  9. Numerous "tales" during the morning, first reported to be a "fast ferry" (to be fair Red Eagle is fast compared to yachts ), but appears to be that the Red Eagle collided with some moored yachts and a pole this morning during thick fog. https://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/16906718.lifeboat-crews-rush-to-crash-involving-red-funnel-car-ferry-in-the-solent/

    Wightlink port redevelopment & new G class

    I did wonder that myself - Last I heard was she needed docking, yet yesterday and today been over to IoW, although not sure if in pax operation.
  12. Any word on how the repairs/modifications/fixes are going on the Yeats? still on the same pier (then again so is the RORO on the other side)

    Goodbye St helen

    Nice pics - good to see the two girls still looking in good condition. Love that the Needles poster is still onboard. How does their new route compare to Ports - IoW?

    Commodore Goodwill

    I think maybe the funnel top being orange is related to the logo - the pink ribbon is at the top at the front (bridge roof) whilst further along the orange ribbon is on top (funnel).
