Thanks Nutbourne, was wondering if you were on one of these or still on the Genevive?
Are the roles of these two vessels different or are they both simply ferrying craft?

Stevo I was on the Norton for the Arks departure, good day had by all nice gesture for the tugs to sound their horns as the Ark departed Portsmouth. I was amazed by the turn out for her. The Norton or (Ex D 37) both are used as ferries Norton was built by FBM marine IoW in 1988.

Cheers Nutbourne. Yes, the sirens really added to the occassion and the turn out was on a par with a state funeral such was the atmosphere. Probably the most solem send off I have witnessed.
