Just discovered this via a Dutch webcam, quite an exclusive car ferry....Handy for extra transport when you get into port, but it must be a pain craning it onto the road. I wonder if his car insurance covers the vehicle being washed overboard?

If he can afford the boat that's carrying the car I doubt he'd be too much worried!

A couple of times I've seen barges on the big rivers in Germany with a car on top

20 years ago I went to the Orkneys for a fortnight. One of the ferries wasnt a Ro-Ro - the vehicles were craned on and off with nets slung under the wheels.

As my old VW Golf was getting on a bit I ended up with all the tops of the wheel arches caved in where the nets had pressed on them! :D

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I get something quite different when I do a search with those key words.

You wouldn't believe how many Dutch webcam sites I looked through before finding that one....
