I notice from the web cam in the building hall that the far end of the dock at the caisson has been flooded , this is usually  done to remove the caisson to  allow access for a barge in under the gantry  crane to lift in prefabricated sections from Poland , maybe a sign of something to come .

Dry again now. I guess they just turned the clearing pumps off for a bit to save some electricity.

Honfluer was due to go in sea trails in December.

going by these latest pictures, there still appears to be a lot to do - at least to the untrained eye!  ;D

I have also been told that berth 49 at Dublin Port isn't long enough at present to accomodate IF 777

They also said WB Yeats would not fit Pembroke Dock.

We might find out more tomorrow morning.

Hull 777 due for delivery in "late" 2020

Seriously doubt that.  Work seems to be skeleton staff based. I wouldn't be surprised if ICG cancel the contract for 777, and follow Stena and P&O's lead and go for a Chinese yard.  Secure funding from elsewhere.  At current rate ICG would be lucky to have 777 by 2025!!! 

Honfleur seems a good 5 - 6 months away from delivery.

Did you mean to say " do cancel the contract " not don't .

Are we sure FSG have the funding in place to start ordering parts for Build 777.

Typo, sorry.  I think 777 will never materialise. The project is already behind schedule and construction hasn't even started.
