You need to read the article to the last line. The charter is for 21 days to 15/12. So it’ll be back in reserve/use for Christmas freight.

But still leaves us exposed for 3 weeks if any issues with Ben or weather in meantime when shops are stocking up for Xmas,also with postal strikes we are likely to get several days parcels at once which again takes up room.

Personally think it’s a risky decision, boats possibly cancelled tomorrow

My understanding is that the charter, as the previous sub charter, has a charterers 24 hour break clause in case of need by the charterer. A sort of force majeure clause.

So Arrow can be recalled, and here almost as quickly, as if she was riding it out at Warrenpoint.

Arrow has been doing this type of thing for ages. It just usually goes unreported

Heysham terminal is even nicer than usual. For the last week or so, there has been no power to it whatsoever. 

Baggage conveyors are now a couple of blokes walking bags round etc. 

Cost saving measures with the price of power now?

You would think a couple of jump leads to the power station over the road would sort it.
