St Faith

Recommended Posts

And only 8 knots ..destination Southampton so must be something to keep her out of service over xmas and new year as Wight sun is in service during Xmas and new year on Portsmouth route

One of the 3 engines on St Faith is knackered, she can't run to service until it's been repaired. I've been told that the tug is there for standby purposes, St Faith can sail home on 2 engines but they are not taking any chances.

What sort of general mechanical condition is Faith in, I wonder? I know she is the newest of the four, but as a regular traveller St Cecilia - some four years older, dating from 1986 - seemed more reliable and less prone to vibration right until the end. As far as I was aware Cecilia was the "highest-mileage" of all four of the Saints as well, surprisingly.

She is still snug in Southampton. Is she waiting for a dry dock? Guessing she won't be back in service until 3rd Feb week as that's when this temp timetable ends.
