P64 Just approaching the Cork Coast. And so the Appledore episode ends, for now. Six fine ships, better than anything seen before in terms of crew comfort. The RN followed their lead. No more mess decks. No more sharing a cabin with 20 others.

Thursday Morning. Soon after she was off at full welly (24Kn) accross the Irish Sea, arriving at cork Harbour at about 1900hrs.
In coming weeks her main armament will be fitted. Her workups should take a year at least, befre she could be called fully operational.

P64 Was commissioned last week, In Waterford port, under horrible weather conditions.

Thus ends the OPV replacement program.
Next up, A large vessel which will be capable of operating helicopters, and carrying mission specific cargo, to replace the last ship built in the Republic of Ireland, L.E. Eithne.
It will be similar in function to the RNZNS Canterbury, but unlike that vessel not based on a Ferry design.
