    Photos from Poole

    Evening! Visited Sandbanks yesterday in my way to the Poole Boat Show, couple of pictures attached of the Barfleur, MN Pelican and Condor Liberation. Nice place to watch the ferries at Sandbanks, and fairly lucky with Brambles Bush Bay being on the Purbrook side for both Barfleur and MN Pelican. Barfleur looks a lot better condition paintwise than Normandie, shows how the more extensive / longer Caen route has bigger impact.

    Future Ship Powering Options

    now you're opening a can of worms... Nuclear Ships would require special berths to use, more (highly trained) crew. Some places won;t accept nuclear ships.Then in 30 years time, you have to try and dispose of it...

    BF Refits 2017-18

    Draggin this one up a bit, but was watching a programme on the HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH, and it showed the propeller blades were fitted by divers post undocking - from the size of them blades replacing the Normandie's should be a doddle!
