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.



Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
