Comment posted Research reveals shock insights into reality of Dunoon ferry service provision by Peter Wade.
Ferryman all newsroom has done is simple maths and made some conclusions. No need to make this personal just because you don’t agree.
Taking your figures you need to divide this by 2 as its a fair assumption that half go to gourock.
I wonder how many foot passengers western takes.

- Funnily enough, when Cowal ferries were providing a vehicle service, they were more expensive than Western
- That’s the best bit of news I have heard in years. Thanks Dave, you will not be missed.
- They have been searching for years. More hype and no substance.
Even if they find a boat they still have to sort out the legals and the money.
- That would seem fair on the basis that most people in Dunoon have been ignoring your misinformation for years.
- Ferry man on average I would say that your posts are empty.

- One in the eye of the storm for the Dunoon Gourock Ferry Action Group
I can understand why everyone gets so frustrated with the action group in dunoon. They moan when the service goes off and low and behold, they moan when the service is on.
The Flyer was probably the only one or one of the few still operating on Wednesday. Rather you should appreciate that fact.
- CKD Galbraith say new tax and support proposals create minefield for sporting businesses
That’s what we have come to expect, an intelligent response.
- Will the Dunoon Ferry Action Group now think really BIG?
The new tender will require new vessels as there is no way the Government will approve the future use of the Ali Cat or the flyer. In fact the reason for the 2015 start is to give time for the tender followed by the construction so the winner is ready for the 2017 start of service.
The action group met with Nicola sturgeon the other week but no details have emerged, therefore it can only mean that they did not hear what they wanted, otherwise they would have been crowing about it.
So a new passenger vessel from Fergusons must be where the smart money must is. Perhaps the first announcement from the new transport minister?
- Transport contracts – are Scottish Government’s hands tied or not?
The option was with Fergusons, not sure how this is legally transferred to the new company.
- Scottish Government invests in future of Ferguson’s shiyard
I wonder how this contract was placed without going through the procurement process.
Hopefully now that the SNP has found away around these all future Cmal vessels can be built in Scotland.
