I know we had to have a meeting with someone(long phone call) regarding how many boats etc and payment
Will have a chat tomorrow, if they are willing to do a deal I will forward the currect guys email to you.
Thanks for the offer, but, having just spoke to 3 separate Condor Offices in Weymouth and Poole, they are insistent about 6.5m length and pass me on to their rip-off freight chap who quotes £1400 for driver only. I would not risk trying to take a bigger boat as I might either not be allowed on or damage boat trying to manoeuvre on ferry. Brittany Ferries on the other hand were very helpful and had no issues with bigger trailers.

Sounds fine except I would need more details. Do you have pictures of slipways, where can you park your car etc etc. I am not willing just to rock up in France with family and hope for the best as I am not familiar.
I have ICC + radio licence etc - all the usual stuff - no snags there
