Red Jet 5

Do anyone know when Red Jet 5 will arrive in southampton.
Red Funnel claims end of may, but i have heard the first week in June.
But i has not seen any sign of her yet.
Also who will be doing the upgrade on Red Jet 5. Husband Shipyard?.

Any updates on RJ5?

FYI, this http://www.theeleutheran.com/index.php?news=19 is the Red Jet 5.

Nice how they have admitted it has a decent life for 10 years and because of its frequent use they decided to replace it.

We love you Red Funnel :P

Just testing In actual fact, she did not throw a line or secure herself alongside. So neither is right. And by the way, despite my dislike of calling ships boats Red Jet 5 cannot be regarded as a ship. So deuce perhaps?

i have seen this picture before but i did not know that the other shearwater had been destroy in the tsunami 2004. it is sad to see that nearly all the old red funnel vessels are gone. cowes castle,norris castle are now on there way to be scrapped so that leaves the remaining castle class osbourne castle still working in canada.
i had been told that (sis)netley castle is being sold.
