Now I have every admiration for 'entrepreneurs'.........but I sometimes wonder how much background they have before setting up a new venture. Channel Hoppers idea for day trips to the Channel Islands was to charter a 38metre, 417gt catamaran. Now on the days the wave height was actually low enough to permit it to run, I am lead to believe the ride was somewhat less than comfortable - in fact the vessel very quickly aquired the knickname 'the Vomit Comet'..........enough said. The service did not last too long. But she made a nice picture on the days she did run.........

Vomit comet, hahahaha! Fantastic. She ran a hefty route up north at the rugged(to be modest) Finnmark-coast. But i bet she had lots to do in the swells down there. "Vomit Comet(express)"
