New cowes floating bridge

Recommended Posts

Obviously there is two big pits to tension the chains so at least one new one will have to be dug out and moved ..also they are segregating passengers and cars so they can load at the same time ..also resurfacing both slipways

Old one being scrapped? They should use it for something like the old Sandbanks one, that is something to do with shellfish. Long and old history, shame to see it go for scrap.

Old one still in Gosport.....we can hope for a return of a vehicle floating bridge as the charge would be about the same for a car as the current Gosport Ferry charge. B|

That's obviously after someone has pulled the thing around the south coast first. I can't see anything on Marine Traffic that might be a tug pulling such a load and heading for Cowes. 

On another matter, am I too old to be contributing to this part of the forum?  The description at the top of the Solent Scene page reads:

Solent Scene

A special child forum for discussions regarding Solent ferry activity, including Wightlink, the Gosport Ferry & Hovertravel.
