    • On your first question, it's embarassing for me to even attempt to explain. And it comes down to the rotten Greek mentality, especially in whatever has to do with the State. My take on this is, imagine there was a legal framework which was crystal clear and left no space for ambiguity or gave no right to the Minister to intervene at will. If you're the State and its servants, this is bad news because it leaves you without any bargaining chip. How would you be able to do favours to those who support you politically? How would you be able to extract favours and benefits yourself from those who have business interests in this? I think you've found yourself long enough in Greece to catch my drift.   I'm fully with you on the timing around selling some of the old Sealink ferries. Looking at which ferries where enlisted for the subsidised services in the Aegean after those sales(Nona Mary, Saos II, Panagia Tinou, Panagia Hozoviotissa, Aqua Spirit, Aeolos Express, Artemis to name but a few), it's clear to me that these ships could have provided a much better level of service in such roles. At the same time though, to see back one of them in her 5th decade of life, after a long lay up and following years of service in areas where maintenance and safety standards are lower than low, is definitely a step in the wrong direction. Arguably, if the right amount of money is put on the ship, she can come back white as a dove. But at this day and age and with the statutory requirements taking the course they're taking, does it make any sense to spend such money? I very much doubt so.   The ANEK front has been rather quiet in terms of developments. Now that you mention it, they only mention of their name I have seen lately was in an interview by Grimaldi a few weeks ago where he clearly said that they "are in talks about ANEK". I presume with the banks and about the possibility of Grimaldi buying either the company as a whole, or some of the silverware such as the 2 Adriatic ships. The gist of it is that both ANEK and Attica are at his mercy, he can sweep them clean off the table if he pursues it. And this is a major failure of the management of thos companies over the last 20 years.
    • It's always puzzled me why this happens - any idea what the logic of making these bids is?    Either of these would be very good news for the fan of old Sealink train ferries It would be great for the Al Salmy 4 to make a return; I felt had a bit of life left in her when she left Greek waters as the Azoreans seemed happy enough with her turning up each summer. Then again I still bear a grudge that HSW sold the Masarrah 14 years ago when she still seemed to be well filled with passengers every summer morning so perhaps I'm not a good judge of when a ship's time has come.  Any more news on what is happening with ANEK?
