Does this mean that she will be leaving for Dublin this weekend or does she have to have any other work done?

Ok Falckenstein is now heading back out of Flensburg. What's the story there?

It could have been towing a barge , they bring smaller pre fabricated sections from Gdnask on barges and unload them trough the building hall with the gantry cranes . The doors were open earlier today with the caisson removed to allow water in , the gantry cranes can extend a few metres out of the hall to lift off the sections . They are most likely sections for the ship that will be built next in the hall .They are not the superstructure sections for the Brittany Ferries new ship , they will be delivered after the hull is launched .

Painters busy on a sunday touching up the paint. At least three cherry pickers in action.

Hopefully WB Yeats will be ready for delivery voyage this week.

Word off the German forums is that ďdeliveryĒ is expected on Thursday 22nd.
No word if that is a handover in Flensburg or arrival in Dublin. If itís to be in Dublin for Thursday itíd want to be moving fairly sharpish!

Delivery normally takes place at the shipyard.  Same as buying a car, they want to get the money before you sail it off the forecourt :-)

Does the starboard side need paint touch up ?
