Back to normal for Ben my Chree

Tue, 20 Dec 2011

The Ben-my-Chree is back in service, and is now fully operational.

The vessel was in dry dock over the weekend whilst it's repaired bow thruster was re-fitted.

The Ben carried out a freight only sailing overnight, resuming normal passenger services at 8.45 this morning.

The damage to the bow thruster meant the Ben had reduced manoeuvrability, which increased the number of sailings disrupted by gales.
