Jonathan Swift II sounds good. Whatever the name, I am looking forward to a trip across the Irish sea on her  ;)

As someone has already posted, reflagged to Cyprus.  Matrix ship management also posted to Facebook that she passed a number of surveys as well.

It appears that the Westpac Express was detained by authorities in Malta in December following a EU Port State Control inspection which found a number of deficienies including Safety Management Certificates and issues with Rescue Boats. She was held in Valetta from the 20th until the 23rd December.

Has now moved into drydock in Belfast.

We will hopefully have exterior shots of the new look when it's finished.

Keep an eye on the Facebook page linked from this site

She has been renamed and reclassified as a Fast Craft. Looking forward to taking a spin on her next month.

she is now reclassified as a cargo vessel.

I guess this will change when she moves out of drydock.

She'll only be going from DD to the ship repair quay anyway I'm told.
