Thats my first post by the way.
Frequent traveller as I'm a truck driver, so any first hand information, I will pass on.

thanks for that information Trucker, was looking at the Isle of Inishmore on marine traffic yesterday and was wondering what was up.

Bit of a bad situation when a ship spends a month in dry dock, and then have a major malfunction.
All good now though.
She nearly back on track.
45 minutes or so late leaving Rosslare tonight.

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.

 I just heard from a reliable source  who has seen the Oscar wilde today.  She has had some New paint work, her name and her Logo have remained and possibly being re painted. As we know I.F. are very tight lipped about it but if  there are any clues  this Probably means she must not going anywhere but where would she be deployed if she is staying in the fleet  ??

WB Yeats linked up with a coastguard helicopter just now off the Wexford coast.  Returned to her track to Cherbourg now. Emergency or practice?
