It looks like a shower to two most places I'm going through. That's not bad. When are we catching up?

I think it will be wet all over, take it easy if you are on semi slicks.

I am working in Launceston on Friday and don't have a car to keep up.  So I will head back from there to Hobart on Saturday afternoon, so can do a drink and a meal if you like.

You still got my number?

From what I can read 30 to 40 knot winds . About 5 metre waves as you do the crossing following sea looking at the wind direction.

The issue with that Ferry is they don't tie down the cars until its rough,I've crossed once when it was rough ,nothing was damaged ,be very unlucky to have a car damaged .

Will just be a rough rolly polly trip,rolls a lot that Ferry

30-40 knots are OK. Looks like 100 knots not so much. :eek:

30 to 40 knots  you'll know what its all about as you go through the heads ...once you turn the corner to Devonport it will be ok,I reckon you will have about 6 hours of roughness..

I'm used to it by now. I've done a lot of crossings in the past 10 years.

I've been doing the Able Tasman thing for about 35 years now and I have never seen a car damaged, much less written off like they were last week. The chances of being that unlucky are incredibly remote.

gone are the good old days where you could put a car in bristol aircraft freighter and have it flown over.

Great driving roads the Melbourne Mille is over there in October for the 5 day rally,i can't get any of my friends interested in doing the trip.
Tossing up if I'll do it ,in the end i will as the roads are too good to miss.
