Looks like setting pattern for future . Water taxis are an expensive alternative . Alas what should a poor yottie do ?
Buy a wet suit and swim to Piraeus or KOS or change plan and stay in Turkey?

greek ferry strike

Indeed, shooting oneself in the foot doesn't begin to describe it. The ferry workers union is opposed to the seamen's health insurance fund being incorporated into the new national health service fund. It's symptomatic of the Greek problem that everybody wants and expects "special treatment". See Athens News online here: http://www.athensnews.gr/portal/1/54749.
And just to illustrate the "special treatment" aspect of Greek life, the political parties have just awarded themselves 29 million Euros in funding to enable them to fight the upcoming general election even though no date has been set for it yet.

How wide spread is this strike? We will be taking the ferry from Corfu to mainland at the end of the month

It is such a shame - apparently Hotel bookings in Zachinthos are down 50%, Corfu 30% - a big pull out by Germans apparently - what a surprise......
Shooting and foot springs to mind...
