Default TARBERT FERRY - no centre stand?

I dont have a centre stand on my GSX 600F.
Would it be safe to use Tarbert Ferry?
do they provide straps to anchor the bike?

Brought the bike from the UK on the ferry with no problem, but then again its a big ship that probably doesn't bounce around as much as a small ferry and the bike was strapped down.

Thinking of doing loop head, Clare coast up as far as Ballyvaughan and back again to north Cork tomorrow. Ferry would save me a lot of time if I could use it.

don't need it, sidestand and leave it in first gear, ferry is very stable, hardly feel movement generally unless stormy conditions.

Stay away from the Bar on that ferry. It's a ripoff.

Ah no!

There's an exceptionally good Starbucks on board with exquisite ham & cheese croissants (or should one say "le croissant avec fromage et jambon") when paired with a deliciously frothed cappuccino greatly eases the chagrin experienced during the long tedious passage....
