I noticed that. I was also told that they broke their mooring chains when attempting to dock? Thats what my mother said she heard on the radio. Don't know if there is any truth in it though.

There was a lot of talk this morning about the two ships going to Dublin to discharge alright. For my own sake thank god they didn't, last time i'd to deal with a boat load of rerouted passengers who were at sea over 10 hours it was a case of crash helmets required. At this point the two ships have still to get in and now the Oscar Wilde is coming in to join the fun. They could all be going to Dublin yet.

The Inishmore got in alright but now it looks as if the Oscar Wilde is going to be stuck out there for a while. Still the Stena Europe is out there going nowhere. Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall on that ship at the moment.

Winds seem to dying down inland, or at least thats what I think. How long do you think it can stay out there before things start getting a bit dangerous?
