  • think the irish pine was me father's first ship and about the time that video was shot
    The Irish Pine(3) was sold in 1984. It went on to be the Cristinaki, was sadly lost with all hands about 100 miles off the Cork coast in 1994. There was a docudrama on one of the Discovery channels(open to correction) a few years back. The rescue helicopters were just reaching her when she went down. The crew radioed that they could hear the choppers. Very sad.

    I wonder in there any books available on the full history of Irish Shipping Limited, and also that goes on to detail the ultimate fate of the fleet...




  • yeah he was all over the place on it judging by pics that are at home, i defo know he was in canada aboard her


    Ask him if you can scan the first page (of ships) in his book and post it here.I started in 79 as well but had to go to the CIT first.

    i can actually remember it being on the news when was younger, luckily he went on to work for bell lines here in waterford after it was sold




  • Stena Felicity was the first ship i was on. I can still remember coming down to Rosslare and you could see her funnel away in the distance. I remember thinking it was massive.

  • The Felicity is somewhere in Scandanavia now isn't it? My oul fella spent many years aboard her, then a few more on the Beatrix when she took over the Fishguard route.

    Wasn't the Irish Ferries Normandy the twin of the Felicity?




  • The Felicity was a great ship, went over on many occasions on her. The Stena Europe currently on the Fishguard run is the sister to the Normandy. There's pictures in various book on Rosslare of the two sisters side by side in their different livery's

    Ah yes, I knew it was one of the two!

    I've seen them side by side many times myself.

  • My father was a bit of an 'enthusiastic ship spotter' for want of a better expression. We used to spend our Sundays in Dunmore East with a couple of pairs of binoculars, spotting merchant shipping in the estuary. Unfortunately there’s not as much of it these days. Aside from that though one memorable trip was on the PS Waverley. Don't know why she was in Waterford though. We boarded on the quay in Waterford and steamed down the river and out around hook head, turned about and steamed back up to Waterford.

    PS Waverley

  • Not the highest quality but I think this one catches something awesome. I dont know much about ships but I have loved this video for some time now. Maybe its just the song :pac:

    I did my steering ticket on the Normandy.

    Found memories on that ship.

    Thanks for that. Good luck to you but have already put your post to use to answer a regular question I get. Why I would rather work in West Africa over the North Sea?
    Done that but much prefer these weather conditions.

    Everyone to their own, as long as it pays the bills:), but you forgot to mention construction.

    Although I'll bet when you go for a pint in your local when at home, everyone still thinks you work on rigs.

  • not a ship but def a boat - sorry if in the wrong place




  • at 323. You can guarantee that wooden table wont last even a few months in such wet conditions :pac:






  • Details and lots of pics of the incident here

  • Good panel beater, wait for the tide to go out, no problem :cool:




  • Can anyone add the music from jaws to that clip




  • Another nightmare scenario



    source
    Fishing boat coming out of the harbor supposedly cut off the Matanuska forcing the ferry to do drastic collision avoidence. The maneuver forced the ferry to over shoot the Petersburg dock. The ferry tried to turn 180 degrees to get to the dock. During that turn is when the Matanuska hit the dock. Tides were extra large that weekend with 5 knots of current on the stern. Petersburg is at the north end of Wrangell Narrows, a challenging waterway for the most experienced navigators.
