Gb!

Had a look at her passage on AIS site today. (Sad I know). Interesting that she passed between Herm and Sark and entered the Little Russell from the south?

Is it true that she was vandalised with graffiti whilst in the solent!

Was fully blue when I saw her - no writing in sight.

Le Grand Bleu is a little bigger than Guernsey, by transfering 300tonnes of fuel, is Guernsey likely to float away?
