Comment posted Gourock-Dunoon ferry: the authoritative position by DunoonLad.
Ferryman- I bet Alex Neil has told Archie Robertson to use the Coruisk for the winter. Not before time, lets hope they get it in place before the Cowal Games.
Maybe this is a ridiculous comment, but if you remember a streaker was used last year, but for passengers only!

- From the Dunoon Observer – ARGYLL Ferries confirmed this week that troubled passenger ferry Clyde Clipper will be leased to supplement AliCat and Argyll Flyer on the Dunoon-Gourock route’s busiest day of the year – Cowal Games Saturday.
However, the news has been met with dismay by ferry campaigners.
Not a rosy decision!

- With Heb Isles in for repairs, CalMac charters replacement vessel to reduce underprovision for Islay
Here we go again ~
Talks over a pay dispute between ferry operator Caledonian MacBrayne and the RMT union have broken down.
The union claims CalMac offered a two-year pay rate based on the consumer price index rather than the retail price index, which would mean staff pay will “fall behind the cost of living”.
A yearly bonus of 1.5% if the company makes a profit is also under threat, the RMT said.
They will be an absolute world class company plus some, if they can repay all the subsidies they receive, then make a profit, which apparently they can then give a dividend to their staff. Is it just me, or is this idea some truly masterful fictional dream?

- HIE opens new business hosting facility at Sandbank near Dunoon
At nearly £2 million for the building, I’m sure the locals could have suggested far better uses for that kind of money. Along with the multi-millions spent on installing a white elephant link span, this seems like a disastrous misuse of what is public money. One project that would surely come to mind, would be a bike centre to support the new cycle tracks on the hills above Dunoon, which have attracted large numbers at recent events. Surely support should be given to projects that are already progressing, rather than hoping for new ones, that may never start.

Given all the lies that were told before both referendums, I can see why voters think that both results are not really what they wanted to happen. Catch 22.
- Transport Minister says next Gourock Dunoon ferry contract will bring bigger vessels to the route
Interesting that the new contract is worth 50 million, four companies will be invited to tender, and Kilcreggan may be included. 40 metre boats landing vehicles at Kilcreggan?
