I did and it was without incident, apart from there being a shoreside electrical fault with the ramp (sounds familiar!) and we couldn't drive off for about an hour!!

One of the cars which was caught up in the above incident was aboard when we boarded on Wednesday evening, it was to be delivered to Kirkwall. It looked a bit flat toward the rear!

Hang on, 30 - 10 - 09? I'm a bit confused here as it's only the 14 - 03 - 09. I am obviously missing something here, please help me out Tanker. :-)
