Just letting you know, I've made a fairly large update to my site www.sealink-holyhead.com if you want to check it out.

There is also a small forum there for general Sealink/Dun Laoghaire related stuff. Feel free to sign up.

Cheers Justin...I'll go take a look! :cool:

You're welcome..... Did Stena not have the Adventurer before the foreground was turned into what it is now??

Let me rephrase that.... did Stena not use the Adventurer from Holyhead before the foreground was changed?

Nope, that reclaimation was carried out for the current Stena Adventurer, although there was space (reclained earlier when the Isle of Inishmore was on the run) for the Ulysses. As you look at your picture, Stena used a berth well over to the right for their Stena Forwarder and before that the Stena Challenger.

So Stena changed the face of Holyhead!?? Not that it couldn't do with a facelift!!

Do you have links to pics of the Forwarder and Challenger :mrgreen: I'd like to see them :D

BTW..... do you know where the Holyhead dock could have been originally?? I do :mrgreen:

Yep, down on the Llyn Peninsula!

If you go to my site and look at the Ships page you'll see them under Stena Ships!

Yes, Stena have spent a lot of money on Holyhead, but not all for the best I'm afraid. In my opinion they messed up the Inner harbour by building the road bridge across it, blocking the Station berth for ships.

I've updated the Sealink-Holyhead.com web site with news of a former Sealink Dun Laoghaire favourite: www.sealink-holyhead.com .

Looks as if I might snatch 48 hours in D/L first week of september, during a visit to Dubai and France.

Thanks for that mate - always looking for feedback - both good and not so good!!! I'm never really fully happy with it and keep looking for ways I might be able to enhance it.

Hmmm, the resounding response to this tells me not to try meeting with any of you!

very suprised that you think your posting has been ignored --If you check back any lenght of time -you'll find that -and here I''ll only speak for myself -most posts regarding possiblemeets are left until nearer the date --after all those of us with family commitments etc. dont want to make dates :D we may not be able to keep-thru' no fault of our own

Im sure nearer the time-"sometime in Sept." you will recieve a flurry of pms regarding meets
cheers -enjoy your trips

Actually Grammer, if you check back to my message, I did not say "Sometime in September", but "first week of September". This begins in three weeks and an expression of interest now might have helped me plan the week accordingly - maybe even add an extra day. Possible meets from the other side of the world take a little planning, not possible on the week before.
