Manxman will be going to Heysham in the summer. Has it been confirmed that it goes to Liverpool in Winter. The timetable isn't released yet

The whole reason for the reinforcement, at great expense, of the quay wall was because of the scour of the powerful side thrusters being fitted to Manxman.

And no, the 2023/4 winter timetable isn't out. But if they don't schedule Liverpool winter weekend sailings that leaves the new terminal and link span unused for 5 months a year.

It should be for £80 million.

We are not going to get away with 80 million. Not heard anything for months about costings etc. Deliberate or have I missed something. In this case with DOI involved no news is definitely not good news.

Do you remember when no news was good news - where are clowns are involved, no news means we’re about to be screwed

I'm confident that it will sail to Liverpool on weekends just like it used to sail to Birkenhead. I'm sure I have read that it will but I can't find it.

Think I saw the CM being quoted at the 'One Plan' conference something along the lines of 'the GMP want it & it has to be paid for'

Probably spoken after the drinks reception.

He justified it on the grounds that there had been some sort of consultation and people still wanted some sort of sea link to Liverpool.  Ignoring the fact that no price was quoted when the offer was made and a low price was being quoted of £3 million or whatever for the new facility.
