No rush for the deckchairs

I like travelling on Calmac ferries - well, except when it's anything above a force 6 on the open sea. With predicted bad weather, their website is disarmingly honest about the probability of sailings. Here's a couple of snippets from their website at the moment:
Due to the weather forecast for the next couple of days, the Master of the vessel has indicated that the following sailing may be affected from Stornoway and Ullapool; Thursday p.m - doubtful Friday a.m - extremely doubtful Friday p.m - extremely doubtful Saturday a.m - doubtful.

Here's another:
M V Isle of Lewis will attempt a crossing from Ullapool to Stornoway at approximately 1130.

I like this. Kind of "Well, we might get there. Or we might not. And you might want to avoid a full fried breakfast before boarding."
