Lot of flak on the go just now about Forth Ports plans to do transfers off the Fife coast. You would think it had never been done before. Just like scrapping ships- never been done before.

Exactly. However I think the folk that protest are too young to remember or don/t want to admit that these things went on without all the "safety" issues surrounding them today wihout anything major happening as you say.

This is a very interesting operation, my question is are port charges levied or can any vessel arrive and transfer ship to ship? I dont know anything about this, can you enlighten me about the "Protests" and why.
Thanks Peter
