Latest news? Still at sea or in harbour?
Don't be that optimistic! The light in the tunnel can be a train. Sad

OK thank you! See you soon. I'll be over again. Maybe Bjorn Gunnarsson's trailer is onboard old Ben tonight. That's why I ask.

RE: Ben my Chree
What's she like generally ?

We travel on her from Heysham on Sunday 28th and it'll be our first time on her having always bagged Manannan

A little more traditional, and somewhat more leisurely than Manannan I guess but still a nice place to be ?

Couldn't care less at the moment.... Was in the office at 7:45 this morning, and I'm still at it at 23:00 - from home now, but still working. Trying to solve a systems problem in Malta

RE: Ben my Chree
Hope you're not getting paid overtime as from the above posts it would appear that you have spent most of this evening tracking the Ben my Chree and dissing larger ladies.
Don't get your point about larger ladies tights neither, bit like Chris Kinley shouting "they need to take some tension out of that loose chain" surely smaller tights would work better!!!!

Fine. As an IOM resident I usually travel on the Ben two or three times a year and prefer it to Manannan. Ben to Heysham is around 3.5 hours and Manan to LPL is 2.75 hours so there's really not that much in it. The Ben is bigger, more comfortable, has better facilities and you can have a smoke!! Winner all round.
