I would imagine that the adventurer is also having her scrubbers fitted. Same as Ulysses

Why o why could this not have been done during winter.   

Seems like bad planning from the outside

the parts and software required had to be specially manufactured - they weren't available until now

I would say the chances are very high that WBY will cover for ULY and OW will operate in place of EPS

Thank you in just confused why Stems can sail but IF cant? Why are they do delayed today when the weather is fine?

I can assure you that the weather was far from "fine" in Dublin port this morning. Almost every arrival into the port requires assistance from tugs to get onto the berths. And the reason why IF fell so far behind Stena today is simply due to the fact that thier ships got tugs first. It takes a while for them to go back out to the next ship.

According a ICGs half yearly report it would suggest that the Epsilon won't be returned to her owners untilFSG777 is delievered in 2020. I would suspect that Epsilon will operate DUB-CER until spring time. And that the OW in the booking engine will be swapped out for the WBY when she does arrive. There is no way that OW could cover DUB-HHD on her own, surely they would send OW to ROS and bring the IoI up to Dublin for cover.

Has anyone else thought that tonight may well have been the last time that we will see the inishmore in Dublin? Assuming that Yeats will cover Ulysses and epsilon will cover yeats during dry dock season.

Not been a great year publicly for Irish Ferries, with hindsight they should have done this earlier in the year when the Stena Carrier was sitting idle in DL, they could have covered unaccompanied freight and used Epsilon, or brought Inishmore up and used Carrier for excess freight.

Stena RoRo were only a phone call way !

Would not be surprised to see Inishmore and Epsilon swap if this goes on longer than expected, with excess pax transfer to Stena.

As far as I am aware there are issues with the Epsilon being able to berth in Pembrooke so a change over isn't possible.

According to Irish ferries freight website all Ulysses sailings are cancelled until further notice, and epsilon will move schedules to cover Ulysses from Saturday until the Ulysses returns from dry dock. Yet passenger website still shows as on Time?

Ulysses 0240 and 0805 sailings cancelled. Quoting technical. The price seems fairly high this year for not sending to dry dock?

This was a scheduled cancellation - to allow for an underwater survey I believe. OW is going to take up an extra 1415 ex DUB & 2000 ex HHD to help shift any backlog

Now confirmed that Westpac is to replace the Jonathan Swift;

Announcement this morning from ICG;

"Sale of Jonathan Swift

ICG announces that it has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement ("MOA") for the sale of the High Speed Craft “Jonathan Swift” to Balearia Eurolineas Maritimas S.A.

The agreed consideration of €15.5 million less brokers commission is payable in cash on delivery less a 10% deposit to be held in escrow. The vessel is to be delivered by the end of April 2018.

The “Jonathan Swift” which was commissioned by and delivered to ICG in 1999 and has since operated on the company’s Dublin – Holyhead route. This vessel will be replaced in our fleet by the 2001 built High Speed Craft “Westpac Express”, which was recently redelivered following a period of twenty months on external charter. She is currently undergoing a refurbishment programme to bring her up to Irish Ferries passenger service standards.

The “Jonathan Swift” was delivered to the group in 1999 at a cost of €38.8m. The disposal will generate a book profit for ICG of approximately €14.0m.

The proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes."

I think the MV Munster in 1968 was the first car ferry for B&I line. I could be mistaken however.
