    (Yet) Another Red funnel crash

    I also remember when a castle class left east cowes with the engineers still in the white hart and had to anchor whilst they were ferried out to the ship

    (Yet) Another Red funnel crash

    And not forgetting one that went up the river medina and got tangled with the floating bridge

    (Yet) Another Red funnel crash

    There was an incident possibly in the late 70 s when a castle ferry rammed the sea wall in cowes demolitioning a large section of it in thick fog .it just went astern and went on it’s merry way without all this fuss .you could tell where for years by the new bit being cleaner than the rest ..maybe there was a problem with engines like when the link span at Southampton was rammed

    Wightlink port redevelopment & new G class

    Victoria of Wight has gone into service as predicted..thought they have done a sterling job to turn her around so quickly hopefully her and the Clare will speed up loading with double deck link spans and traffic will no longer spill onto highways.so well done Wightlinks staff.red funnel have a new marshalling area in east cowes which has certainly reduced queue s on road .so well done to them as well
