    Do we know why? Don't think it's been overly windy.... Or is it the fog?
  2. RF seem to have been rather tardy at updating the new build website....

    Well VoW is currently in the middle of the Solent so..... St Clare is in Portsmouth.

    I'm still confused.... You started your post by saying "Do you think they will keep the removed mezz deck in storage..." but I don't understand how they could keep the already removed deck? Please help me understand!
  6. It's not. I checked when I crossed on her a few weeks back. April/ May time from memory.

    What do you mean by keep the removed deck in storage? It's long gone and probably made into razor blades by now, not in storage somewhere. If you mean to take the remaining deck but decommission it into the "up" storage position permenantly, that doesn't remove the weight of the deck from the vessel.

    Ah but isn't it forward in at Fishbourne? So starboard side vacuum berthing at both ends but with the ship facing different ways to accommodate the need for VoW and St Faith turning.

    Bit of an old link but..... http://www.offradarcruisenews.com/2009/02/burgess-marine-to-build-new-emergency.html?m=1 I suspect it is the same thing used at Lymington previously.

    Wasn't it built specifically for the W class?

    Am I right in thinking that it is the starboard side which has had 3 or 4 windows removed and steelwork added to cover both the window spaces and what was the open space below only the car deck? If so, steel is heavier than glass I would think so that's further weight imbalance.

    I would guess quite significant changes to the hydraulic system were made to accommodate removal of mezzanine deck. I wonder also about ballast arrangements as it could well have a very imbalanced load now.

    Be fair! They painted the new metal bits! I assume the removed the glass and the interior has something to replace the glass-making you're not just looking out into the back of the welded in plates?

    Yes although the published (printed) timetable differs from the "live" (actual) timetable so which one matters for the purpose of calculating service reliability and punctuality?
