    Not bashing you. But since you posted something patently wrong, refused to see clear facts and then claimed you were "qualified" as you had travelled on the ferries it was right to challenge you on this. Note though that I challenged what you said, not you as a person. I don't know you from Adam but only know what you post online. And I've never mentioned Brexit!

    Knowledge and opinion are 2 different things. Your knowledge should tell you that your opinion is wrong. Technical details 🤔... Why would measurements be useful in comparison of 2 objects eh....!

    I don't think travelling in the ferries "qualifies" you to know the technical details!

    Did you read the link? It's not just painting the word green on the side of the ferry. There have been changes to fuel, waste management etc. Granted it's not as good as hybrid but still steps in the right direction.

    That's actually an unfair dig. No doubt it's the RF response to Wightlink VoW. https://www.redfunnel.co.uk/en/corporate-info/media-pr/press-release-library/red-goes-green/ Now back on topic...

    Wow. Did they make a horrible navigation error and think the esplanade was the berth? I wonder if hitting the yachts and grounding saved a potentially nastier collision with the wall? It certainly looks very close. Screenshot from marine traffic, photo taken from iwcp.

    And in Fog again. Do the radars not work? https://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/16997409.red-funnel-runs-aground-with-cries-of-people-heard-from-the-water/?ref=mr&lp=1

    Wightlink port redevelopment & new G class

    Don't tell me to moderate my posts. Free speech etc and you're not a moderator. You just always seem to pick up on the negative but ignore the positive. And seem to make slightly spurious claims which cannot be verified.... E.g "I was talking to a "top dog"..." raises questions over who, or how this conversation would have come about. Whereas something like this gets ignored... and yes, I am aware of the start of the 2nd post you can see complaining about delays!

    Assuming St Cecilia goes to Delcomar... Will this cause issues with the delivery voyage for them or will it be reflagged and then not under MCA rulings?

    To be honest it's close on libelous at times. If you read Adicats posts and knew nothing else you would think Wightlink take deliberate actions to run late, and waste money hence inflating fares. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and view but it should be balanced and if necessary, evidence based.

    Another example... The notion they would be paying hourly for a tow.... Ridiculous!

    It just annoys me. There's nothing to acknowledge the £30m spent on a new vessel, or £15m spent on sorting the double deck loading facilities, but as soon as there's a short delay it's immediately the fault of Wightlink and needs posting about. What people often forget is that Wightlink have to operate in a really congested port with military and cross channel movements, Red Funnel only have container and cruise and often get priority over these vessels.

    You really don't like WL do you? Why exaggerate delays? And do you have any evidence for your statement regarding a 2nd hybrid ship or is this just supposition?

    I was down in Gunwharf earlier. VoW was out and about doing various trials including berthing on both sides. St Clare had to wait a while at 3pm in Gunwharf. Stunning looking vessel although already some scrapes on the bow, presumably from the tow.
