Vehicles damaged on Manannan crossing

Recommended Posts

Not sure it was a Force 8, but if it was, it begs the question what the hell was the master doing sailing a `Vomit Comet` into that kind of weather?..The last sentence of the notice to distressed motorists was the most interesting. They are trying to absolve themselves from damage claims `However they occur`?..Good luck with defending that in court. The Master, of course, decides when or not to sail and has ultimate authority in that respect. But the owners have a vacarious liability for his/her actions. If that vessel sailed, knowing that the likely conditions were marginal or worse (which the report suggests happened) then the Master may have acted outside his/her authority and or without reasonable regard.

    If so, send the bill to the skanky, costs dodging, offshore owners.

It WAS pretty blowy up here in Belfast but no idea what it was like that far south.  In any case, parts of ship (its been suggested on facebook they could have been fire protection panels) shouldn't be falling on peoples property!  Perhaps the different insurance companies will end up fighting this out - i wonder how much it would have cost to put this "right" given the negative PR it has generated - might have been worth it?

I think he's hoping for the job of Ambassador to the EU once Yorkshire gets its independence and is just honing his skills. 😀 Ed.
