For someone like me who has never had the opportunity to see behind the scenes I found that interesting.

the flag on the funnel is the wrong way round
How come , it appears to be running the same way on both sides as it should !
Flag always appears to slope up from left to right. On one side of Bluestar 1 it is sloping down from left to right. See comparisons in attached.

How do you refloat a ship somewhere like that? The article talks about tides, but, it's a canal (and doesn't look like they can raise the water level a lot). I assume the only option is to lighten her (take-off boxes)?

In other new, I personally feel a lot better about the first time I failed my driving test for not doing a good job of the 3 point turn. Least I didn't hold up world trade like.

She is dug right into the bank. I'd say it will take a while to get moving again.

Seems to be mixed reports what actually happened. Some say the wind, others say engine failure.

Suez has been blocked for over 24hrs now. But some of the online commentary is funny. Ship is operated by a Chinese company, so apparently this is just the latest step by China for world domination! #TinfoilHats

There must be large numbers of continental drivers now stuck in the UK who might consider a reroute through Ireland. Not to mention the Irish drivers who were just passing through and now need a direct route.

Does anyone know when Irish Ferries will publish 2021 January sailings to France?


I asked back in July when Brittany released theirs, they responded to say "It will be approx September time when we have these schedules available"
