Incredibly lucky, that could have been catastrophic. Wonder how that happened.

The Port of Waterford has started the process to upgrade to new pilot boats.

This is the current model.

Hull looks like the Aquastar Nelson 42' hull with the pilothouse finished by someone else.

Another Aquastar hull for caparison.

I remember seeing one of the Dublin Port Pilot boat being built there in the 90's. I had my boat there for a few months when she was being done up (my dad was friendly with the yard owner).

Also remember when they were building a patrol boat (for the Customs I believe), and they didn't have a large enough mould, so when they fibreglassed out the transom in the 50ft mould, they just applied 1 flimsy layer of glass, and then removed the mould and moved it back about 5 feet or so, and then cut out the dummy transom and glassed in the extension with the proper transom. It was pretty cool to see a 55ft boat coming out of a 50ft mould.

Stena's new Dub-HH ferry has successfully completed her sea trials in China. Due to enter operation in early 2020.

Good to see that the Appledore shipyard looks to be reopening soon. Where else are we going to get our naval ships from?! Could do with a bit of dredging though.

Under EU rules it had to be an open tender, but that will change once they are out of the EU. However it will probably mean that we won't be able to get anything built there if the EU is funding it.

The first time a narco-sub has been captured in Europe (AFAIK). Imagine crossing the Atlantic in that?!
