FSG should partner up with fittout provider and focus on designing and building hulls which they are good at.

WB Yeats seems to be coping well with Storm Ciara  leaving Dublin pretty much on time tonight for Holyhead where as Stena Estrid has been cancelled twice ex Dublin today.

Inishmore cancelled all day as you would expect.

Today Monday Epsilon cancelled Yeats sailing pretty much to schedule. Inishmore cancelled until tomorrow night.

A few weeks ago in high winds WB was unable to dock at Holyhead  and spent a few hours circling waiting for the winds to die down. Today SFX is being held on her HH berth by a tug.

Great photo opportunity for anybody in Gdansk Ulysses and Pont Aven side by side in dry dock.

Ulysses departed Drydock in Gdansk @ 1615 local time and carried out manouvering trials in Martwa Wisla River.

She is now berth on the Martwa Wisla Quayside completing her refit.

Her funnel looks to have escaped any major surgery

It has but that doesn’t mean the decks below haven’t - all that piping has to go somewhere!  She’s also late back which surely puts Inishmore’s installation in doubt given Easter is approaching, unless they drop more France sailings!

The new Dublin Swift timings are interesting.  Different departure times on alternate days.  IF said this was in response to passenger feedback when I asked, but it’s surely no coincidence that the days she sails later are when W.B is in port!

Is the Swift being fixed while its wintering in Holyhead? Didn't it have issues before the end of the season last year?

Swift is booked to go to Belfast for Drydock Mid - March 2020

When is Ulysses due back in service? When is Isle of Inishmore going into dry dock and where is it going for dry docking? How long is WB Yeats operating the Pembroke service and when does this commence?

Ulysses taking bunkers today at Gdansk

Swift in Belfast for planned works prior to her return to service, no sign of Ulysses making a move back as of yet. HSC Manannan in Cammell Laird dry dock, Adventurer back and due to take the 1400 ex Holyhead this afternoon.
