I’ve never had to strap down my bike on ferry crossings, the crew always did it? I always waited for mine to be done to give it a little test though.I was on a ferry with my Harley and the bike next to me wasn’t strapped down at all!! I summoned a crew member and told him I’m not leaving cargo deck till that’s strapped down (it was a sh1tty Yamaha FJR). They summoned the rider via tannoy and down and told him it had to be strapped down, he said “I thought the crew did it” ???
Hull-zeebrugge crossing, always had to strap my own bike down, I think crossing to Ireland the crew came to do it, I politely declined saying I’d do it myself (always have my own straps) as I’d seen all the other seats squished down flat, and thought that’s not happening to my leather and snakeskin custom seatI’ve never had to strap down my bike on ferry crossings, the crew always did it?

On the Cairnryan - NI crossing all trucks are lashed, sometimes they fail, or, the dockers don't fit them correctly. Trucks go over every winter somewhere in North West Europe. On our ferries we always asked bikers to lash their own bikes, much easier and faster when you have 600+ on a crossing.
Ah, yes I see now ... yes I did mean dog ... in my defence I was chomping a nice hot 'pain au chocolate' at the time so was a bit distracted!I think you meant "dog" but you wrote "do" which could be interpreted as something else
After reading that I thought I’d better make a quick call and check my insurance to make sure I’m covered when on a ferry crossing. It’s covered so nothing to worry about, must admit I’ve never thought about before.
Dont worry about it,,accidents happen even on roads ,,BUSBY
