I can walk to the ferry, still does not mean the ferry companies will not do there best to make the Manx Steam Pact Company look like opportunists rather than out and out crooks for over charging...

I'm booking nothing, as it all went tits up for the Welsh one after I'd booked a premier inn, no cancellations. I went anyway & had a ride around for a few days :thumb:

Wait till you meet the Solent ferries, I can ride to the local ferry terminal in 10 minutes.
Yet it's cheaper to ride to dover and get the ferry to France than get the ferry to a port 3 miles south, including petrol costs....

My daughter lives in Cosham. Looked at taking my grandsons over to the Isle of Wight until I saw the fares. Ludicrous for the distance.
Back in the blue. No bikes.....

It's the most expensive ferry in the world mile for mile apparently. The cost of the ferry seems to be an issue for a lot of you guys, it's always been that way. I've been to the TT a few times, this is small change IMO.

I'm more excited by the thought of seeing my road racing heroes doing battle around the circuit. Seeing them blast down the Military Road will be epic.

Soz for not complaining about the cost of the ferry.

There's some serious feckin moaning going on about this looking at the IOW news, I thinks it's going to get scuppered by the locals.
