Still wondering if the build on the Flensberger webcam is the new Irish Ferries vessel. Looks a little small to me -however she is far from finished yet.

Is there any way of knowing?

Yes it does look like another RoRo , i would think the new IF build would be wider , anyway let's keep guessing were all the sections lying around are going to go on this one .

Yes it looks like EKOL's 2nd RoRo Fadiq which is being built. The outer hull sections seem to be painted blue.

As expected by many posters on this forum, IF is to name the new ship with an Irish literary name. Full details available at www.bigshipbigname.com, including a possible prize of free transport with IF for life...what better prize for forum members here!

Looks like the current build may be hitting the water this week. They are doing final painting and the dais has been set up.

FADIQ was launched this morning and has just now been moved to the outfitting quay at FSG.

Well the Naval Service have taken the remaining name choices , Irish Ferries may have ship named the  MV Roddy Doyle in service .

I entered my suggestion of "Pygmalion" - George Bernard Shaw's famous play.
