    Red Jet 3 for sale

    I’m sure I read an article sometime in 2017 where the M.D of RF stated they were going to have three ‘Jets on the run.

    Wightlink are hoping to get things going at 1500 today. Wight Sun is on its way over from Portsmouth as we speak.

    Wight Ryder II

    The yard that made the catamarans is no longer in business and there's probably a queue for the lift at Trafalgar Wharf. Suspect it may be a while until it's back.

    Has it blown another engine? It's been oos for a week or so now.

    Ex Fastcat Ryde & Shanklin

    There can't be long left on their life span. Those MTU's were notoriously awful too. Similar vintage catamarans are being sent to the beaches. Not in the same league, but HSS Discovery is currently on the beach at Aliaga in Turkey for recycling.

    Ex Fastcat Ryde & Shanklin

    Just found this on the internet regarding the old Fastcat Ryde and Shanklin. They were used during th Sochi Olympics and then for a while in early 2014 on a service between Russia and Crimea. Th article is old so may be irrelevant but one would imagine they are both probably nearing the end of their lives being aluminium. http://www.rosmorport.com/news.html?id=3056

    Problems with the WL cats

    Re: Problems with the WL cats According to Wightlink today, WRII is going to be out of service for a few weeks - something to do with the injector(s)

    Problems with the WL cats

    It seems Wightlink have been having mysterious "mechanical issues" with WRII all week. Not another bust engine is it? Tonight they've also lost WR1 to a generator fault. Not a good night to be a passenger at Ryde or Portsmouth Harbour.

    Re: Transeuropa Ferries in trouble? A source of mine who is a captain on the Thames informs me that the Ostend Spirit has been sold by P&O to DFDS.
