I think Normandy is correct when he says that Oscar Wilde was due to take over from Epsilon the switch to using Inishmore  may have been made in response to the Nordica collision.
Meanwhile anyone wishing to express interest in taking over the fast craft run from Dun Laoghaire  can apply here

Dublin dry docks are about 200m long so it would fit albeit very tight I remember seeing the St Killian 2 in there several years ago and it was often used for repairs to the old B+I ships.

Well it would appear that thats that for the HSS! End of an era for Dun Laoghaire too

Great images thanks for posting. Superfast X has left dry dock and is alongside in Gdynia tonight, so the paint job must be finished.

Bad timing with Irish Ferries only running one ferry until Thursday when Inishmore takes over Epsilons duties

Europe is still circling in Cardigan Bay (several hours now)Adventurer and Nordica berthed while Ulysses ploughing across, Epsilon en route to Cherbourg as is Horizon and Oscar Wilde well under way. Questions have been asked before about the suitability of Stena vessels on the Irish Sea, their policy of best fit rather than purpose built ships seems to come up every time there is a bad spell of weather and for good reason.

Weather playing havoc with schedules, Adventurer took a brief trip out into the bay to allow Nordica to unload and then move down to Ocean Pier 33 before coming back into berth herself. This afternoons Epsilon departure to France is delayed, waiting to see what they do as she is on the berth with Ulysses entering the bay. Swift's return from service was due to start today but all sailings cancelled.

Swift is on her way back from Cammell Lairds resumes sailing on Friday, Epsilon is next for annual inspection (not sure where though) with Inishmore heading back south and Oscar Wilde taking up Epsilons duties for the duration.

I see Dieppe Seaways (Superfast X) has been moved to a dry dock in Gdynia today. Must be getting her new livery applied, her arrival on the central corridor getting closer does anyone know when she is due to take up her role.

The Jonathan Swift is in Liverpool for her annual service and will be out of service until the end of the month. No great loss considering the number of recent weather related cancellations.

Epsilon is berthed at Cruise 18 Terminal 3 until Saturday 27th when she will move to her usual berth 49 prior to her scheduled Cherbourg service

Such a shame, glad I took the opportunity to make a trip across on her this year. Suppose the end had to come at some point.

I see that the Oscar Wilde missed her scheduled sailing to Cherbourg last night, due to technical issues. Has anyone got any information about this?
