I just hope no one attempts to block the channel!

Will she be under tow?

Hi Nathan ,
She has been towed half way around the world and back in the past few years trying to find a country daft enough to take her!

But coming to our country I know the job will be done properly and safe as possibly can be done , unlike some of the beaches in India

Must be one strong tug bringing her down, or perhaps more?

Hi Nathan

Yes - decommissioned 4 years ago it wouldn't be viable to maintain her engines purely so that they could be used to transport her to the scrapyard.

Hi Nathan

I would hazard a guess at well more than one Tug  - 3 Ocean Going Tugs at a guess :-)

Hi Nathan

That was just my guess  :-o

I would imagine that given her size the Port would want her to come in under the best of weather and light conditions, so I predict a daylight inward movement - perhaps early morning, so  may have to camp on the South Gare overnight!

Hi Steve, why not book a B&B on the seafront.

That way you have guaranteed warmth!

Hi Nathan

But camping allows me to be on the spot should she come in ahead of schedule  :lol:
