  1. Cancel that last post vow has broken down in the Solent ..lost power
  2. I have noticed that their ferries run on time now even leaving a few minutes early so the design works well ..money well spent I think
  3. I always thought that there was a spare voith in stock ready for this sort of problem

  5. One of the w class is standing in for her doing a couple of return trips in the morning till dec 4 th
  6. Wight light on the way back from Falmouth
  7. As expected red eagle pulled from service and to go into dry dock ..winter service coming in 3 weeks early so a 2 boat service till next March .apart from Xmas ..lucky they have red kestrel to take the pressure off
  8. Well it looks like the red eagles gear linkage in one of her voith props has been damaged when the anchor came off so she is out of service now for repairs which could be quite a while
  9. It says that Wight light is going back to yarmouth at 00.01 hours ..on vts but probably not right
  10. Wightlink have more boats in Southampton than red funnel both the light and the sky are there
  11. I wonder if the environment charge to drive through Portsmouth has brought this idea about as I was thinking myself to go this way if it comes in
  12. Hopefully will have fixed the problems by then because there is only 1 boat running at times because of various issues .
  13. 18 mins for the fast cats ..22 mins for the Ryder’s ..obviously Ryder’s use a lot less fuel .

  15. Used it yesterday and thought how quick it all was check in was very quick got there 4.25 for 5 pm sailing. ferries all running full turned vow round in 20 mins even tho full of vehicles. loads of seats available .the double deck loading was brilliant ..the vow is a nice ship and I hope they get another one for once I was impressed with the service.

  21. If they take the engines out of the light and put in the sun they got two boats ..which they might of done as the sun is running in these very high winds 😂
  22. Paid 62.50 for day return from fishbourne to Pompey day return Monday car and 1 ....work paid for it
  23. We rarely go off the island now as it just isn’t worth the expense .when we go to Gatwick use a taxi at about £120 return as cost of taking car over and airport parking has priced itself out.
  24. Only Monday and Friday are premium days now
