Thanks for that. I had already found it and I had also been in touch with ViaMare, London( a very switched on American guy called Dale who has lived in London 13 years and very helpful). He was able to offer us discounts to combine the Ancona-Patras on Anek/Superfast with the Blue Star Piraeus-Patmos, which I am sure we could not have got direct, but it still came to €1219 return.
I have been planning to get Basia to Patmos for a special birthday at the end of May. However we cannot leave here till after her Mother's 97th birthday on 13th. While getting out there is achievable, Basia's other desire is to see Tuscany and Provence(again) but that would all have to be done before UK MOT by end July, with a flying visit back to Mother in between.
I think you will appreciate that this is all too much in the time, so we are scrapping taking the MH to Greece this year and will fly to Athens and take Blue Star to Patmos(8 hours). We can then use more time for the rest and go with MH to Greece next year and do Peloponese and maybe a couple of nearer islands, most of which I am familiar with - done 70 in my boat over 30 years.
I think I will use ViaMare when we do it, so thanks for that advice.

PM if you prefer.
Be in touch later.
