Anyone know where Epsilon will berth on arrival from Holyhead if Ulysses is on 49?? Also has the crew been onboard Ulysses all this time or have they been put up in Dublin and will they reboard?? Would be interested to see if the captain makes an announcement on the first sailing saying anything...or is even present on the 0805 after navigating down from belfast all night!

Irish Ferries have 3 berths in Dublin 49 51A and the fast ferry layover just behind 49. Epsilon uses 51A regularly

I have no idea where you came up with that it departs from 51A every morning.

Ulysses on time, Epsilon  returned to her proper schedule. Normality is restored. There must be sighs of relief all over the Irish sea.

So what happened this morning? Where did Epsilon berth when Ulysses arrived? Did it make the 0805 and if so did Epsilon just sit in Dublin until itís normal 2pm?

According to MarineTraffic.com Epsilon waited on berth 51A - (Beside Stena Adventurer). Ulysses departed promptly at 08:05 at Epsilon moved onto 49 to wait for her 14:10 departure.

It might seem light in Dublin and be quiet significant in Holyhead. Swift limit 2.5 metre wave height.

Interestingly a 91m Incat is certified for 34kts in 3m.  Or 29kts up to 4.

I suppose the longer the craft the more stable she is.

Possibly though overall hull design would be a factor as well.  The HSS for example was stable due to the unique hybrid hull design for example.
