  • Photo Op?

    For those of you in the Cork area, L.E. Emer is currently in drydock, less rudder and her Prop shaft Pulled. It is a rare opportunity to see this vessel out of the water, and may be the last time Emer visits for routine work like this(though it seems like it was not that long since she was last in).

    The ship currently lies in Cork Dockyard, Rushbrooke,Cobh. Stop at the gatehouse on your way in to let the security man know what you are up to. He will appreciate the courtesy.

    Remember the Dockyard is a workplace, and a dangerous one at that. Be aware of your own safety if you intend visiting.

    Super photo Goldie, cheers.
    Cannon to right of them,
    Cannon to left of them,
    Cannon in front of them
    Volley'd and thunder'd;
    Storm'd at with shot and shell,
    Boldly they rode and well,
    Into the jaws of Death,
    Into the mouth of Hell
    Rode the six hundred.

          Yeah, Hull is usually done when its in drydock. As long as its still grey on top and red underneath,

          Did you get photos?

              Im surprised shes in drydock longer than expected, this must mean the goverment arent too bothered about purchasing a new ship and are happy to pour thousands of euro into the P21.

                  They often have problems with that. Its a job and a half getting them out, or in. Eithne's on the other hand, will almost fall out once the seal has been broken.
