  1. Now that our borders are effectively open, why are we not filling the empty Ben with Uk staycationers. We could encourage them with almost free boat trips and it would hugely assist our hard-pressed hospitality providers. Needs an ad on national TV to let them all know the Island’s open….guess that will never happen.
  2. She will go via the North Channel and then direct.
  3. Bye, bye, thanks for visiting us.
  4. Yes, I guess she will soon be gone. Interestingly, she has not used her anchor, just held a GPS static position on her thrusters.
  5. Reason for visit ? a. Shelter b. Re-registration c. Financial business d. Meeting with Rob Collister ref Cruise visits e. Buy a tin of Manx Knobs f. Finish the Prom g. Other h. None of the above
  6. There are some very enlightening articles on the web about the design philosophy of this boat. Worth a google search whilst we are on lockdown.
  7. Won’t fit in the harbour 30 m longer than the Ben.
  8. It genuinely is called “A”, he also has a £300M motor yacht called the same. You can see it’s name on the stern from Onchan Head.
  9. Only £400M if you want it.
  10. Not just any big boat, A, the largest yacht in the world. Belongs to a fairly rich Russian. Maybe he’s come to buy the Island !!
  11. It’s not 1st April is it ?
  12. Based on the reasons for closure in the consultation document we could end up with all roads being closed to vehicular traffic. I might guess that it is easier to close than to maintain ? The Minister also states that a business case cannot be found to reinstate the road, however, a case has been found to replace the railway bridges on the old railway track !!
  13. I do wonder if rolled crushed stone is going to be strong enough in this harsh environment. After all, it is replacing concrete in most areas. Did our predecessors know something we don’t know ?
  14. 84 year old neighbour given a first jab date of 17th Feb, and that was yesterday morning.
  15. This is all quite worrying. If, as stated, the inoculation programme is planned to go on until the end of the year does it now mean that the “powers that be” do not expect the airport to become operational until then. Or is it just that the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing?
