Later on when She arrived at Douglas she failed to berth, on re-entering the bay she rolled to a point when the water was coming onto the upper vehicle Deck.
I think this class of ship is very good, they take on a lot!

:roll: They are reputed to have pumped around 300 tons of concrete into her keel to make her more stable. I don't know if this is true or not, but certainly in the last two or three years she has been much more comfortable to travel on in inclement weather. I use her regularly. In the early days she was known on the Island as the eternal flame.....never went out. I live in the Isle of Man. :-)

They take a lot of pounding in this type of weather, seas are running pretty good there in that photo.
