Ferry peculiar story

I don’t quite understand the story click here to read that the Bonanza Express will not fit in the harbour the Gardenia one of the ferries already using the port has dimensions of Length x Breadth: 118m X 20m Bonanza Express dimensions are Length x Breadth: 96m X 26m does this mean that she is too wide?

It really is very odd ship dimensions are hardly secret and one would expect the port authorities to know what size of vessel they can accommodate.

Update, I have discovered that this is due to modifications that need to be made to the roll on roll off bridge for the cars to get on and off the ferry.

  1. A bloke in the pub, who works in the harbour, told me three weeks ago that they couldn't accommodate the Bonanza Express without alterations.

    Cllr Latchford admitted a meeting took place two days ago.
