Forth Recreation Ground

Tuesday - 12 May 2015

Forth is a free camp without power or water - so it was out with the generator. The generator ran for several hours on Monday night then all day Tuesday on a tank of fuel - probably about 15 hours.

At about 4:30 pm we packed up and headed into Devonport to catch the ferry. Pretty much a case of hurry up and wait, as we were not loaded until near last at about 7:00 pm. We were eventually loaded on Deck 5 and told to drive under the ramp for deck 6 - pretty silly really as the van was too high.

We were told to drive under Deck 6, which is lifted up to allow cars to drive under.

Our cabin was 7000 which is located on deck 7 in the middle at the very front of the ship. The Captain advised everyone to expect 3 to 4 metre seas on a 4 to 6 metre swell. It seems that the stabilizers can cope with that sort of sea as there was not much motion, but being at the front of the ship it was quite noisy when the larger waves hit the vessel. After a couple of red wines we had a good nights sleep.
