The Lame Cat Limps In After Long Crossing!

Photographs  John H. Luxton 2007

SUPERSEACAT TWO seen at Prince's Landing Stage on May 19, 2007 after a slow crossing from Douglas!

SUPERSEACAT TWO managed one of her longest crossings ever between Douglas and Liverpool on May 19, 2007 taking a grand total of 4 hours 47 minutes! SSC2's morning sailings had already been rescheduled due to adverse weather conditions. This delayed her morning departure from Douglas to 08:50. For several days she appears to have been running on reduced power and presumably three engines. However, by the time she arrived at the Bar she was down to two engines! A correspondent monitoring communications with Mersey Radio indicated that she was not allowed to make her approach until three engines were available. She eventually arrived at Liverpool at 13:37 with a crossing time of 4 hours and 47 minutes! With the TT 100 Festival due to commence in a few days one hopes the vet can cure the ailing cat otherwise chaos will ensue!
