Hey Barry, back on topic - I take it you rode the Spirit of Tassie over? How did they handle the old cars? Any special treatment, parking spot etc? I've riden the spirit with a modern car and was a bit worried about how close some cars were parked etc...
I'm considering riding over for a bit of a cruise around...
No probs Daz, even on the trip over which was rougher than the trip back, the cars didn't move at all.
Most have their cars in Park/in gear and the hand brake on.
Probably the only tip I can give is not to line up early as you may end up near the bilge pumps LOL and then be last off the ship.
I did take time to get out of the car, get our carry on luggage out and check that the people in the car alongside did not do the car park door slam on the missus's Hatch.
The other tip is to take a sea-sick tablet just as the boat is leaving Port Phillip as it takes over an hour to get to open sea and same on the way back.
Night trip is obviously the best as the day trip is ocean views and ocean views and ocean views and you have wasted a day of driving in Tassie.
On board you settle in and have tea then maybe take in a movie or 2 or sit around having a few drinks but you have already been there done that,
barry is all happy now
AND you certainly find out who your mates are, eh mate
