WB Yeats looks ready for action. Hopefully she will go on sea trials tomorrow morning,

Steady stream of crew (i presume) going onboard dragging suitcase behind them.

The cherry picker was taken off just now through the lower vehicle deck. Tugs Kiel and Stein are en route to FSG now from Kiel. That piece of front decking at the top front of the ship will need a quick lick of paint before she goes out.

they loaded a 20 FT container onboard the upper deck this morning via the crane,

maybe the rain in Flemsburg will wash away the dust mark off the pier webcam.

It wasn't dust at the top of the webcam. The top of the shipis just out of view of the webcam. I saw that big container being looaded

Under tow and away from the berth!

I presume they manoeuvre her like this at first because they are not yet sure how she will react in tight areas.

Hopefully all good news from now on, best of luck to all involved

I was Lucky enough to be able to have a sneaky look during work at her progression to Bornholm  and she reached a top speed (so far) of 23.6 Knots

Has shown plenty of speed, impressive

24.1 knts at the moment just off Bornholm, not to shabby, shipyard crew must be having fun showing the IF crew what their new build can do.
