Not Ferry Funny

Thought we heard on the radio that the IOW Ferry got a bit friendly with the dock in Southampton today?

Anyone got details?

Doesn't sound like a gentle nudge either!!!

Still you should see some of the Greek island ferries in action - no wonder they have railway sleepers stuck all around them!!!
