not a totally pleasant experience.....

i have done a lot of miles in the things and they do vibrate a little bit, secret is to have a hammock and suspend yourself above the deck and near the roof area near the back. trying to find an area where the temperature is a bit more constant

I can think of nicer ways to travel

Quite, some bloody heating in the things would make life a little more comfortable for the passengers. Came back from Gib in one, during a scorchie hot summer. Within an hour there was ice forming inside the windows and we were dressed in t shirts. Finally spotted the Bristol Channel, great turn right into Lyneham and we are home. Nope Loadmaster tells us we are going to circumnavigate Wales so the Pilot can get his hours in .

I bet its a very small proportion of the total from any marina I know of.
Errrr judging by most marinas I've been in I'll amend that to "ever leave their berth". The local spiders certainly apreciate the mooring warps.......
