Today an investment company has bought into FSG the shipyard that built the WBY.

I donít think this is the end of the shenanigans at the shipyard, SIEM do seem to have got four ROROs built at cost by the yard and presided over the cataclysmic building of the WBY and what surprises are awaiting the Honfleur.

This story could continue for awhile yet.

Where did you hear the name? Is that not the name of the Naval Service latest vessel?

I see the naming stand has appeared this morning.

I've been watching this one regularly since they laid the keel in December. They basically started the day WBY was handed over and the MARIA GRAZIA ONORATO was launched.  So approximately 4 months, if they start the 2nd SIEM immediately we could be looking at the start of IF 2 late August?

They started on the Monday after the Honfleur was launched; the Maia grazing onorato las launched in late July or early august

Launched!

Looks like Honfleur has moved to the other side of the pier and the new launch has taken her place.

Nothing started in the build hall yet. Looks like they are all having an early Easter holiday. Given the amount of metal they have shoved though those big doors over the last year, they most probably deserve it!

Speaking of those doors , they took delivery trough those doors  over the last few days of pre fabricated hull sections from a barge .

The prefabricated hull sections are in the foreground in the image.

They are having a rest for easter.

They must of done a deal with IF to cut them some slack after WB Yeats was delivered.

I heard a rumpour there might be another order to replace IOI as soon as IF2 goes into service.
