Photo 2: typical! You call your ferry Red Kestrel and another bird comes along and craps all over your nice paintwork. Ed.

Watched a artic petrol tanker go on the last lymington sailing last night ..so the freight boat will be a godsend for these and other hazardous loads as passengers are extremely limited on these sailings and means that hazardous loads can go on many sailings instead of being restricted to one overnight

Gunwharf no longer take trade vehicles only Lymington so Red Kestrel could take 48 if need be.

Really? Anybody else heard this? It seems very short sighted? What is classified as a trade vehicle?

Please clarify. 48 what? It can take 12 lorries. Unsure if that is with or without cabs? Not 48 though!

I didn't really understand this whole post to be honest. Adicat, could you clarify what you meant?

Sorry...cars. Trade cars is new ones for IOW get dropped off and driven on by staff and are unaccompanied. Portsmouth to Fishbourne no longer accept them. Only Lym-Yar. Therefore Red Kestrel could be used and therefore pinch all the trade.

They won’t waste the valuable freight space on cars they will just stick them on car ferries ..

UPDATE: - 'Red Kestrel' is currently scheduled to arrive in Southampton on Thursday Afternoon/Evening (18th April) entering via the NAB Channel, docking alongside Berth 48.

As usual, this is Subject to change

Interesting - I wonder why via the NAB channel and not the Needles?

To pick up the pilot I expect.

 

Alongside in Pembroke Dock today.
