Photos on the Irish NS facebok page show that many of the hull sections are at quite an advanced stage of prefabrication. Indeed the shed seems to be full of assorted hull bits.

Does not make any difference Dierk being an ex Boarding Clerk so use to being out at any time of the day or night. Received a call on Thursday a lady who works in the local supermarket her husband hopefully taking in on a tour of the shipyard prior to the launch hope they will allow me to take photies.
