MV Riverdance-Make or break time

took this shot at 13.05 today, Saturday, 09.02.2008 at high tide. the only vessel in sight was the small survey vessel from Fleetwood, warding off the jet skiers taking a look.
Tomorrow the tide is a foot higher and then receeding for some weeks.
Will they, or Won't they??

Having straightened the horizon it takes a rotation of 25.8 degrees to get the port side of the rear door horizontal. So to get it vertical would take a rotation of 64.2 degrees. Seems to be further over than before.

The Phocine is making her way to Heysham with an ETA Monday 12/2.
She's the former Dart 3, one of a series, that used to ply Belfast - Heysham.

Could she be replacing the good old Riverdance ?

i dont think she's coming back from that,
i would say more like a constructive total loss,
she does'nt seem to be offering to float indicating water is inside her

Kenny,
You are correct, Seatruck Ferries have chartered the PHOCINE to take the place of RIVERDANCE
