Weather must be worse than I thought. We had a 2hr powercut last night - the first in years.
Just been to check on my boat after seeing on the news waves breaking over our harbour wall. Everything fine thank God - wore a lifejacket on the pontoons as they move around a hell of a lot. A mate of mine likened it to one of those "fun house" moving walkways........
Just seen this on the news.
Passengers and crew are being airlifted from a ferry in the Irish Sea after it was hit by a freak wave in bad weather.
The Riverdance, which sails from Warrenpoint in Northern Ireland to Heysham in Lancashire, is listing to 60 degrees after its cargo shifted.
Hope everyone gets off ok - a heli rescue in that weather can't be much fun!!!
Fairplay to the BBC they have provided this link to show where the ship is - suprised they have even heard of AIS.........
