Pretty frightening for all those concerned...
I would not have wanted to be on that Boat that's for sure.

I once was on board the Norwave heading out of Europoort in the Netherlands bound for Hull. There was a Westerly gale blowing, and boy was she a beauty. Things got so bad the Ferry that should have arrived in Hull at 07.30 hrs was actually six and a half hours late. They had to throttle her back on the crossing. I and a few of the other drivers where sitting in the aft bar having a few beers and we could hear the props lifting out of the water. There weren't many of the passengers to be seen that night for some reason. drum

I wonder if I might have actually enjoyed that Davo. We once took a night car ferry from Harwich to Hamburg. The sea was very rough. Mrs Mart was pretty scared and never slept all night. Car alarms kept going off, due to the movement of the ship I suppose. We had a small cabin near the car decks deep down in the ship.

Me? I slept through a lot of it. It was just like being rocked in a cradle. I also went for walks around on the enclosed upper decks, balancing the best I could. Things could be heard crashing about. I don't know why but I enjoyed the whole experience.

Just under one hour to go before boarding my plane home. Well, at least to Edinburgh Airport. I don't think he will have to slow down for anything rough. There again if he gets a puncture we could be stuck up their all night waiting for NTS. drum
