  1. Out of service and in the water don’t know why ..
  2. New temporary timetable now till Friday..so faith is out till then
  3. She was in Southampton for engine works probaly waiting for bits to be made or sourced
  4. Been out having an engine fixed for quite a while not sure how long but possibly since early December..Wight light is broke down now so only one boat at the moment till tomorrow when 2 are in service
  5. Update ..eagle is back in service this morning red osprey is taken out
  6. Not sure why red jet is later tho
  7. The problem is red eagle still not fixed after 3 months of repairs so has messed up the refits of the other 2 ..luckily red kestrel use helps a great deal to get 12 artics off of the raptors which frees up lots of space and time as when a trailer is being dropped on board the deck has to be clear of people ..
  8. Still not fixed and the winter timetable has been extended..don’t know what the problem is
  9. St faith on her way 15.45 to Portsmouth
  10. St faith is due back tomorrow afternoon so hopefully been fixed so can at least get a 3 ship service on Monday onwards
  11. Makes sense now as st faith is going to Portsmouth in 5 days time and if she has a engine out then will take longer to cross ..I think st Clare is going for refit
  12. You can’t book the freight ferry as tried so had to use the 7 am but wasn’t full ..think they just want to get the light out of the way of the bigger boats so load a few lorries and go ..guess traffic is busy from Portsmouth early morning
  13. Have to wait and see which vessels they use as Yarmouth has a 2 boat timetable in operation..seems to take a long time to rebuild engines red eagle has been out over 2 months.and the faith not far behind
  14. They will have to adhere to the regs ..Limited number of crew or hazard load means no more than 12 passengers
  15. It says freight only so I guess it means no cars
  16. Noticed they are running freight only sailings as well ..must be a reason
  17. Think they use the launch normally
  18. Goes lopsided think they need to train someone over here to fix it as soon as someone comes from Portsmouth it’s quickly fixed
  19. Vow stuck at fishbourne link span not working
  20. Crew work from lymington and ferries are not busy today and you can’t make people work overtime so that could be a good reason
  21. Wight light going to Portsmouth and probaly sun going to lymington
  22. And only 8 knots ..destination Southampton so must be something to keep her out of service over xmas and new year as Wight sun is in service during Xmas and new year on Portsmouth route
  23. She appears to have a Southampton tug with her on the journey not sure why
  24. So just 2 boats running again Clare and sky totally unacceptable
  25. What is hard to understand is the sun sat around doing nothing whilst two ferries are broken and one in dock ..people of the iow are sick to death of this incompetence as it impacts into no fresh product in supermarkets to missed hospital appointment s .missed flights .school colleges and the list goes on and on .maybe Wightlink are in favour of a fixed link as they are doing a great job so far of promoting it
