Hi Gerd, Andrzej

I've done a bit more experimenting with Basecamp.

Starting from a fixed point on a main roundabout on the mainland, I've
been creating routes to a Primary road on the Island, working along
this road until it fails to use the ferry and resorts to a straight
line.

Using GPSMapEdit to look at the road segments, positions of routing
nodes and other properties, it appears to work on one side of a routing
node but not the other on a single line segment.
