Diesil fumes? What are these Diesil fumes? Do you mean diesel fumes? I don't suppose you have anything to do with another local operator do you? Our vessel has a new engine and undergoes a £30,000 refit annually. Clearly your pulling our leg!

if you want to travel to Brixham from Torquay or the other way this is by far the best way as long as the weather is reasonable, take a jumper as it gets a little chilly out at sea.
