Chewy - I am sure you are right, and I'm sure its been appropriately tested to get through the approval/licensing process. I hope they've taken into account that the proposed customer base are from a city with an obesity problem though! But from the outside it looks too tall for its beam. I guess what you describe with the CoG being low is a bit like a "weeble". Thats not going to be good for motion sickness (although if I understand correctly the bit of the clyde stage coach are "planning" to cross is so narrow that with a good run up and a ramp you could jump it...)

Is it going to Glasgow?
Imagine that on a weekend, loads of drunks running from one side to the other trying to tip it.

Stagecoach are considering it as a possible option to replace the Renfrew Ferry which is earmarked for closure.
