Keeping up an old Irish naval tradition I suppose...(begun in the early 80s by L.E.Emer V eastlink toll bridge)

She hit the steps cut into the side of the quay wall not the bridge, just inches above the waterline in the steering flat , and a nice gash it was.
We drydocked in Dublin for a few weeks which worked out well for me as I am from Dublin.
Home every night for my tea as the song goes .

You can still see where the plating was replaced...

Where in dublin is drydocking done?

Liffey Dockyard on the north side of the docks close to Alexandra Basin ,not sure if it is still in use . The Isolda was built there which ended up being L.E Setanta .

Eithne also got a nicely bashed in and holed in the stern while docking in Rushbrook while still in the hands of the builders during sea trials . They repaired it overnight and off we went the following morning for another day of sea trials .

Maybe I should never be on a ship . I was also on Emer when she ran aground on the Arran Islands .

Emer also took one up the arse from Aoife back in 1992........

Yeah laners you were a bit of a jinx alright

Fola fouled her prop in a cable when waterford bridge was being built in 1986..took divers two days to cut her free.

I don't recall there being any tree-covered hills near Dublin docks.

So what happened the skipper's career?

NTM

There isn't.

Ask yourself,where is the Naval HQ located?

As for the skippers career,how many tanks did you sink in iraq? They still promoted you :biggrin:

This thread is getting confusing .
The collision with the wall and the grounding in the Arran Islands by Emer did not result in a promotion for the skipper. He retired early from the sevice and he and his family moved from Cobh to a nice little fishing village around the s west coat where he had secured the position of Harbour Master . He was greatly admired and respected by every one who sailed with him.
He led the crew of Emer on a pub crawl in Almeria in Spain , where he ordered all present to move to the next bar on hands and knees . The pub crawl was interupeted by two Spainish cops on a motorcycle dressed like the where from the Franco era and carrying sub machine guns , and they where not amused .
As all this was going on we where all still on our hands and knees or keeling over in laughter.
