How long can IF keep Dover a one ship operation? It's all going well at the moment with the ship in good condition and the weather being fairly good. Are there any rumours about additional tonnage being lined up to join IOI?
Meanwhile Swift is back in business today.

2nd ship planned in September and 3rd in early 2022.

Thanks

Thanks for posting that, missed it.  Looks like it will be a while yet before it is finally sorted. Was handled very badly by the senior management.

If you're a member of below group on FB there is a post about Cotentin. One of the comments shows the large gash on the side of Bluestar. It is someones personal picture, so I don't want to post it myself.

Re Blue Star 1, I seen that photo it is some gash, could it be repaired at the berth or will it require a visit to dry dock?

Reported she may need to go to Belfast for dry dock but not sure it looks that serious?
