The old Mannin dredger I believe is still working well down at Padstow she’s been a fine old workhorse that ship has paid for herself many times over,( if only we’d kept her we could have done the clearing of all harbours of silt and as a bonus could have gathered up all the seaweed on Douglas beach to dump it at sea amongst many other uses. Also could have leased her out to cut costs down. I can’t remember the recent one that’s obviously another crap buy along with that kesh Varrey diving boat the Fuel guzzling  see her a mile of Barrule and that custom boat we gave away, I guess the Tarroo ustey has some uses but she sure ain’t pretty.

On Manannan. 3rd sailing since Thursday. Running on 3 engines. Delay. Engineers on board.

Normally breaks down TT or Grand Prix so not unusual unfortunately!

No one asked you. I was merely reporting. And it’s neither TT or GP. Go play with Condor and don’t bother reporting back.

I know. But you’ve got to remember Banker “thinks” anything CI is better

I never said that , I mentioned somethings they do differently for information!

Just because you denigrate any opinion that doesn’t fit yours doesn’t mean it’s wrong.

Interesting that Guernsey is not having the same cases as IOM and Jersey. Less young people?

All the 2+2 adults visiting  now have to purchase a weeks supply of LFTS at £25 as part of arrival process so I guess many now be doing tests before travel. Also the communication from leaders & public health is much clearer, transparent and frequent so maybe residents take more notice.

This evenings big news on the Nations Propaganda Mouthpiece is that the Arrow has broken down again, whilst on charter to CalMac, plying it’s way between a fantasy lalala land and a Fraggle Rock. 
 

Only last week the new Steam Packet CEO was rubbing his hands at the thought of all the lovely charter fees the Arrow was bringing in. I bet this second breakdown will be causing SP and IOMG to worry.
