Pride of Kent, Heavy contact in Calais.

Recommended Posts

Update from Tarbyonline on the situation with Pride of Kent - copied from his post on the DFE forum with his permission:


She definitely won't be written off, though the damage was very severe. Pretty much the whole driveline on the starboard side from the gearbox back was damaged I believe (wouldn't like to be paying THAT bill). Things like the prop shaft will have to be cast from scratch and there is no guarantee the original moulds even exist still! I'm told it will be the end of March or April before she returns to service.

The MAIB investigation into this incident is now (finally) out to consultation.  Which means publication of the report won’t be far away.  Not sure how long they give for the consultation stage but I would imagine we could see the report sometime next month.
