She finished dry dock works last week. No berth available by DD operator in Belfast since Friday so she’s just laid up in the dry dock until one frees up.

With W B Yeats 8 hours behind schedule because of the bad weather, wouldn't it make sense to dock her at Rosslare and save 4 hours abd get the next passengers down to Rosslare.

Is it just me or would it have made more sense to Dock wb yeats is Rosslare earlier as previously suggested. Or at least move the swift off 51a wb yeats is currently being held up even more because of the berth availability. Or does she have to dock on 49?

Epsilon spent 4 hours off howth due to a lack of a berth in Dublin port last night.

Wouldn't you just be delighted to be onboard.

Ive no doubt this idea will be shot to pieces but would Dun Laoghaire have the capacity to accomodate Swift or a bigger boat?

It just seem mad from IF when the swift wasn't even running so could easily have been moved to have a free berth for wb and epsilon.

Maybe Swift's crew were on the far side of the Irish sea on Ulysses.

Swift have a crew on board 24 / 7 in case Dublin Port Requests Swift to be relocated.

They normally carry out cleaning and maintenance at night.

Swift crew have cabins on the Ulysses. They work during day hours and then transfer over to Ulysses in the evening to have dinner and sleep (all whilst taking a return spin to Holyhead)

There’s a separate cleaning crew that come onboard whilst overnighting in Dublin.
