Vehicles damaged on voyage

Sailing or not sailing used to be at the Masters discretion and in the old days with the sturdier boats, more passengers and less freight vehiclewise they used to sail, usually.   Now it is still down to the Masters discretion but the insurers have tight conditions which have to be considered, I am sure cattle can not be transported if it is over a force 5.   I am sure all the old Manxies like myself have sailed in atrocious conditions and all have tales to tell !!!!

Discretion of the Master still is an important part. I'm sure there are times when the weather is allowable according to the limits that it would still be a really bad idea to sail - that's where the decades of experience come in to play. 

All of us forum and social media commentators can talk about it until we're blue in the face. But none of that is valid compared to the experience of the crew.
