Modern 'C' Class look-alikes

Recommended Posts

With the sad farewlls of the Lymington-Yarmouth 'C' Class ferries fresh in our minds, I thought I'd post a couple of links of two recent additions to the large Caledonian MacBrayne fleet, which share a resemblance to the retired sisters.

They are the MV Loch Portain (2003) and MV Loch Shira (2007). They look like scaled down versions of the 'C' Class I thought.:)

And the Cal Mac fleet list....

WOW it's like a Mini C class, but with the same seats and stuff as the Wight class. Even the waiting room shown at the bottom of the website looks like Lymington. A very small bit!)

 

Ignore me for a few alcoholic beverages have been consumed tonight!

Cross between C & W class. Prows look very Cuthred and the bridge and overall shape a bit like Wight Class Car Ferries, now that we have to differenciate between Wight Class Cats and Wight Class Cars.

Yes they have the modern features such as those stove pipes or 'exhaust' pipes as opposed to funnels and other features, but very alike in the accomodation and outer deck set-ups with the 'C' Class.

 

I seem to recall somewhere the new car ferries were originally given another definition? 'R' Class? (I'm not thinking of the Raptors), but I thought I saw mention of 'R' or maybe it was 'P' Class somewhere? I guess the 'W' will now stick.:)

I think (but may well be wrong!) that the R class were proposed C class replacement prior to the W class ships even being thought of.

I filed bankruptcy on this debt

 

Hello all, I was given Home Equity Loans chapter 7 bankruptcy relief in september of 2005 and only last week, I received a collection notice from this debt collection Refinancing Mortgage Rate agency. After doing some research on them, I found Explain Refinancing a Home out that they do this to everyone; try to harass people to get money out of them. They might have bought this debt Refinance Interest Rate from another company and not aware that i filed bankruptcy on this debt? What can Refinancing i do this case? Thanks!
