Now if only I could find (and afford) a ship or 2 to go with it!

Mind you the ship would need to fit!

Some sort of museum would be nice given how pioneering Stranraer services have been in the past.  Mind you, would anybody bother to go?

  • WHEN IT MATTERS
Wonder what the future will be? I hope it doesn't go the way of Fleetwood, or Hoverspeed Dover. Its sad seeing a empty HSS berth. It will be a sad day for me personally when the Stena HSS Explorer is towed to the scrapper. A museum would be very good, or even a museum dedicated to the HSS, and the history of Stena, or general ferries. I haven't a notion who would buy it.

On a side note the HSS Explorer and Stena Line Dun Laoghaire was in 'Night Train' staring John Hurt, filmed in 1998. It a good film, set in Dun Laoghaire, but the bonus was the scene where Hurt and his lady friend are running away from gangsters, and take the HSS. It's only about a 5 - 10 minutes, but includes the terminal, check in, on-board, starboard side window seating, and a gangster looking at the HSS slip out of the harbour. Nice to see the HSS in her prime. The HSS would certainly be the most legendary Stena vessel. The only thing I would complain about is they were very cold, even the chairs were cold!

Even better would be a museum ON the HSS!

Last time I saw the Stranraer terminal it already had gone the way of Fleetwood.  Hopefully they will sort something out, as it really is an eyesore!
