Some amount of trawlers in what isn't much of a sheltered water down bantry bay. Not an easy life.

Saw them earlier but they all appear to be on the move now, maybe it's not as bad as expected or perhaps they're heading for more sheltered anchorage while they still can.

Just looking out at Dublin bay, Mistral appears to be under tow into the port. There's also what appears to be a naval service ship behind it, not showing up on Marine Traffic though. Anyone know any more?

Engine trouble on it yesterday. Navy is probably just standing by.

Mistral still at anchor in the bay and still with a full cargo of trailors aboard. Too windy to tow her in?

Mistral makes the news... Irish Mirror: Group of truckers stranded at sea without hot water for three days near Dublin Port.

Engine repaired and back into Dublin Port yesterday evening, that's her charter finished now in Dublin, I understand.

There's a cable layer at rest off Rosslare Harbour. What cable would she be deploying I wonder.

Not too sure, I don't think the new power cable to France is due to begin work for another year or so.

What’s the story with “HMS Orion” on marine traffic, looks like a ghost position as it’s been over Cobh for the past year?

Rumoured to have a submarine escort in some of the more exotic parts of the world as they make their way to the discharge port in Japan.

As far as I'm aware, they are armed themselves - pair of 20mm cannon on the stern iirc

Sailed with a guy who had previously worked on them and, at that stage, there were no guns aboard. The last thing you want to do is get into a shooting match with that cargo. They sometimes had trouble with the Venezuelan navy en-route to the Panama Canal and it was around there that the sub shadowed them.

Interesting one off the coast of Wexford just now (heading north) - no name, instead numbered 216 636092603, Cargo Major Hazard A.

Showing Foynes to Busan, South Korea.

Any ideas?
