Work on 781 in the build house appears to have ground to a halt again over the last week or so.
Work on Leevsten and Honfleur appears to be continuing.
It is the holiday season as well don't forget , and the Germans do like their annual vacations .

Exactly this.  A friend actually visited a week or two ago and was told much of the workforce was on holiday.  When people booked their holidays the yard didn’t exactly plan to be in the position they are now in.

Looks like the reason ok.

"Dreams" keep people happy and stop people worrying about reality. 

“Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”

Looks like work is underway again on 781. Delivery doors are closed again and plenty of activity.

Has anyone who has travelled so far on the Cherbourg route any experience of the Inisfree club lounge?  Getting inconsistent info from IF as to whether you can order food from the menu there on the route to France and we will be travelling with our son who has autism and was hoping to eat there in a less packed venue than Boylans Brasserie.

Also has anyone any idea of the menu options yet in Lady Gregory and are there DVD players in the TVs in the cabins?  Thanks  :)

Very excited for our trip next week so trying to tie up loose ends now!

Just noticed LIDL are selling portable DVD with screen for €60 this morning.

Looks like another launching will be occurring over the next few days!

I see the naming stand has appeared this morning.

One more Ro - RO Freighter to be built for Siam Group and IF New Build 2 "JB Shaw" will have its keel laid.

I've been watching this one regularly since they laid the keel in December. They basically started the day WBY was handed over and the MARIA GRAZIA ONORATO was launched.  So approximately 4 months, if they start the 2nd SIEM immediately we could be looking at the start of IF 2 late August?

Lack of berths in Dublin meant the WB spent the night at anchor just outside the port (quadrant 1) she moved onto berth 49 this morning but will have to move off to let Swift in and out this afternoon. Oscar Wilde is scheduled to leave H&W today destination unknown.
HSC Manannan which is currently in dry dock at Cammel Lair is due in Dublin tomorrow for trials! perhaps she has had some structural work done like new ramps?

WB moved out ok south of Howth Head. Swift leaving now so presume WB will move back in to 49 for 16:00 departure to Cherbourg.

OW still appears to be in the dry dock in H&W @ 13:45.

As far as I know she is not on the France run until next week I think. Isle of Inishmore still in DD until Sunday.
Still showing as sailing this afternoon from Dublin to Cherbourg.

Don't fancy those white lines on the floor with a rough sea and a few glasses of Vin rouge consumed! :-)
